Canister Cartridge

Anti-personnel capability for the Abrams tank

Discharges massive blast of fragments at muzzle exit

Devastating lethality against assaulting infantry and RPG ambushes

The 120mm M1028 Canister Cartridge was developed for close-in defense of tanks against massed assaulting infantry attack and to break up infantry concentrations, between a range of 200-500 meters, by discharging large numbers of tungsten balls from the main cannon.
