Armor crewmen assigned to Task Force Raider load Sabot rounds onto a M1 Abram Tank during a pre-deployment training exercise at Fort Hood, Texas, August 18. Sabot rounds work like a basic arrow by penetrating armor with momentum of force rather than explosive power. (Photo by U.S. Army Sgt. Sarah Kirby)
