    Different ammo types are kept in different 'rows' or in different regions of the 'belt'. The loader can pick the appropriate shell. This is the easy part!
    The difficult part (which is one of the reasons why some prefer manual loading) is that once a shell type is loaded, and the commander decides to fire a different type of shell then the autoloaders cannot 'unload' the shell!

    I dont think there is any gun breech that allows the gunner to unload once a shell has been loaded.

    At least thats what I know from naval guns. It simply is EXTREMELY unsafe and thus, mechanically impossible.

    but these tanks have Gunner & Commander by side of the Cannon, they might remove it manually ? !!!
