Based on Mecar’s extensive experience with APFSDS ammunition, the 25mm APFSDS-T round was developed in 1993.

Compared to the standard APDS type rounds, the Mecar 25mm APFSDS-T projectile gives 75% more penetration power.

Extensively tested by the Dutch Army, the Mecar round is now in service in Europe and the Middle East, and more than 800,000 rounds have been delivered.

A short range training round, the M937, has recently been developed for a NATO customer. This round provides a match at 1,000 metres, to existing AP ammunition, and has a maximum range of less than 3,600 metres.
