I watched a chieftain conversion course bang a sabot out on the hesh scale
At Warcop

the day the space shuttle went pop before landing


Hmmmmm
Back in the days of Cent's and it might be an urban myth, someone at Lulworth let off a sabot on hesh scale and it ended up somewhere in France.

One of the HCR lads on Telic fired a 30mm from Iraq into Kuwait.

One of the SKY channels 328 Talking Pictures I think it's called is showing some cracking old films on the armed forces.
One is about National Service from 1955 and follows John as he reports for his NS.
John wants to be an RAOC driver but get's sent to the Royal Armoured instead.
He ends up a CPL Tank Commander
Some cracking tank Porn, Cent's in Germany and Sherman Dozers, Lee Enfield's and a massive exercise at the end.
One Centurian drives through a brick wall and drives away covered in bricks and then we see a shell being fired into a farm house
 
The crew of the CR1 of the RAC Sales Team that fired the inaugural round that opened the brand new Kuwaiti tank range in '83 hit the hard target close to max range. The round ricocheted into the template. All of the template was in Iraq. :)

In the back of my mind is a conversation with a bloke called Sailor, who was in Korea in Cents. The story told to me was that waves of little yellow chaps were storming all over the Cents and the best way to get them to desist was the beesa or a canister round, fired at your mate, shot the bins up a bit, but all's fair, etc. It was 60 odd years ago.
This way of clearing the enemy off the tank is mentioned in the book " To the last Round" (Korean war) by Andrew Salmon, covered quite a bit of tank action involving Centurion tanks of the 8th Kings Royal Irish Hussars
