Experimental APDS for Puteaux SA 18

Post by CameronW » 12 Feb 2019 20:19

Hello gentlemen,
I am searching for primary source information relating to an experimental APDS shell developed for the French SA 18 cannon. The developer was Brandt and we know the French Army ordered 200,000 rounds sometime before the invasion in a postwar report to the National Assembly. The only technical source I have found is the book "Ferrard, Stephanie. France 1940 L' Armement Terrestre. ETAI" which gives a brief description of the shell. I would appreciate your help in finding additional resources of this mysterious Brandt shell.

It wasn't APDS but APCR.
Here's a thread on it.
