This is some crazy stuff ,  a painball round for 125mm tank gun ,for training ? or more likely for tank biathlon. 

Bauman Moscow State Technical University is working on the creation of a new training 125-mm projectile for the "Tank Biathlon", which will be completely safe for spectators. Rector of the university Anatoly Alexandrov told TASS about it.
"On its own initiative, our university offered the Russian Defense Ministry, within the framework of the Kraska experimental design work, to develop a new educational and practical ammunition to simulate a tank duel battle. The Defense Department approved this work," he said.
Aleksandrov believes that the new projectile will be in demand in the Russian Armed Forces, since it can be used in the entire cycle of exercises, including in target shooting and practical targets imitating enemy armored vehicles.
"In this case, the target is not destroyed, but only marked. An important feature of the ammunition is the possibility of its use in the presence of a large crowd of people, as, for example, on the Tank Biathlon. Even with an accidental shot towards the stands, there will be no damage," he explained ...
According to the interlocutor of the agency, the shell is equipped with a system that determines the degree of miss. "It does not destroy anything, but it allows us to confidently state the hit. The training projectile is completely safe and equipped with a self-destruction system," Aleksandrov said.
"Our development will make Tank Biathlon more spectacular," summed up the rector of the university.

I recall in GI Joe comics from the 1990s an American and a Russian tank doing a competitive evaluation that involved at one point the tanks shooting at each other with gigantic paint rounds.

Well to be fair the MOD pretty much ordered a couple carriers without telling anyone so now they aren't allowed to have nice things.
