Photo of the Day: Jogger finds Sabot

According to Pennlive.com, a jogger in Pennsylvania found a suspicious looking object on the banks of the Susquehanna River.  After the police and bomb squad were dispatched to the scene, it was determined that the object in question is an armor piercing fin stabilized discarding sabot projectile.  Based on the fact that the Sabot appears to be held together by a hose clamp, we are going to guess this came out of someones private collection and is not a misplaced piece of US Army ordnance.

  1. Couldn’t have been fired if the sabot section is still bound onto the tungsten section
