However, that was before the US got a hold of the East German tank park which is one of the better equipped Warsaw Pact nations other than Poland and the USSR if I remember right... which led to the development of the modern APFSDSDU darts. Without ETC propellant technology, the only way to get more punching power for tank guns is by increasing gun caliber for a long while now.The increase in power simply wasn't big enough to justify increase in weight, recoil and space taken, along with decreased ammo capacity.
That is why the US was going -quite literally- all in on ETC technology as the Cold War came to a close. You'll get zoomy projectiles with such tech.
