I remember that, I have somhwere part article about Ukrainian tank industry and gun productions. And indeed KBA-3 could be slighty better then 2A46M5 becouse it's based on GIAT licences...from 1997r.In Ukraine there was no gun manufacturing plant, and they converted production line for gas tubes for production of gun design directly from Soviet 2A46M.
And making such assumptions without any base...
Of course gun from 2005 will offer superior performance than from 80s due to advancement in design and production. But you assure there was no improvement.
In 1997 GIAT industry share licences fot tank guns whit ukrainian industry. The how-know was about barrel and others gun parts for 120, 125 and 140mm caliber, and technology production line. Of course apart that GIAT share more licences (example: 120mm autoloader in turret bustle, etc)
