Default M1028 Cannister Tank round

Any chance of modeling this tank round? It's about as far from HE as it could get. I realize there might be no way to add another type of round.

I saw this round demonstrated on Discovery Science "The Explosion Show" and when seen in slo mo it is terrifying. Here's the link to the show, it's about mid way (sorry about the commercials)
https://www.sciencechannel.com/tv-sh...k-powder-blast.

Here's a YouTube of the round in action https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cgn1nhUEgo8.

I was actually playing WinSPWW2 and imagined if a round like this existed then how it would clear those narrow city streets packed with Soviets.

The round has an effective range of between 200-500 meters (Again, probably unable to model in the game, especially the conical shot pattern) out to about 700 meters. The biggest shotgun you'll probably ever see with over 1000 Tungsten buck shot. If nothing else, kind of cool to watch from a non-receiving view and a reminder how lethal combat has got.

Also during Vietnam there was a beehive round for the 106mm RR that was rather popular with the US troops for jungle clearing.

Can't find it but there was a great video of it fired at a truck & wooden house.
Lot of splinters is what you are left with when a really big shotgun hits.

When I first went into the service they gave us a demo of a 106 Beehive.
I'll just say I was glad I wasn't in front of ... or behind ... the recoiless rifle.
