Found a nice video on Youtube regarding Hesh rounds:
Basically, the explosion sends shock waves through the armour and the other side of the armour blasts inside. That way, the round doesn't need to penetrate the armour to do damage. Although this is countered easily through multi layered armour. This round is almost phased out everywhere.

They need to pass Moon and Mars trials too!
Nah, it's got some of the same design flaws as our T series MBTs, but it's got a more poorly designed turret as well
. So, no thanks, K2s are substandard by today's standards.

Does any of you know which of the currently used tank guns has the highest muzzle energy? I was thinking about rh120 l55a1 and rh130 l52 nato production and 2a82m-1 and 2a46m-5 of Russian production.

If you include prototypes the french 140mm probably has the highest.
