Memo regarding APCR

This memo (dated 1946-12-03) discusses a new and interesting ammunition technology, namely projectiles with a core of a brittle but very hard metal, such as tungsten carbide. In order to keep the high speed of the projectile, various technologies (such as conical guns and sub-caliber saboted rounds) are possible. The author recommends contracting Bofors to develop such ammunition for trials with the 75 mm pvkan m/43, and that some in-house trials with the 37 mm pvkan should also be conducted.
