What's going on here?  I can't read that, but it looks like one diagram shows an APFSDS round with two separate penetrators stacked in the sabot, and the other diagram below it shows an APFSDS round with an explosive frontal section that it launches into the target somehow just before impact?

Looks like two different rounds. One KE the other HEAT, possibly BK-29? IIRC that is supposed to have a sold part which causes ERA to detonate.

Looks like a precursor projectile, maybe intended to trigger an active protection system or to deal with (N)ERA elements before the main projectile impacts.
