Dear Ministry of Defence,
I am requesting a list of documentation regarding penetration testing for the following ammunition types used on the L11A5 rifled tank gun;
L31 High Explosive Squash Head
L15 Armour Piercing Discarding Sabot-Tracer
L23 Armour Piercing Fin Stabilized Discarding Sabot
L26 "Jericho" Depleted Uranium Armour Piercing Fin Stabilized Discarding Sabot

Please note that I am not requesting any testing regarding the L30 tank gun used on the Challenger 2, which was an evolution of the L11A5 used on the Chieftain and Challenger 1 tanks.

Yours faithfully,

Eli Hayes
