I'll have to check on monday, but I'm pretty sure the artillery part of
my EOD training featured a 17pdr HE-T round. The T(racer) shows that it
is designed to be used with guns who have a line of sight to the target,
they're no use in artillery weapons. I'm not sure about 17pdr weapon
platforms in use at the time, but it seems a HE round did exist.
