Doubting it's a missile, but what do I know...
Ashenblade
Not a missile. I'm guessing a HE shell. Still cool looking though

Seconding HE round from a tank. Sabot rounds are much thinner.

Definitely comes from a tank. Also, technically I think it's a dupe, but also it's technically not because I think it's in a compilation. Whatever.
glasseye
Not quite a dupe, yeah.

Minus a star for bad tags.

from the comments:

"It's an APFSDS/XROD round - Armor Piercing Fin Stabilized Discarding Sabot. What you see is the flechette, or penetrator, which is smaller than the callibre of the cannon. This is wrapped in the sabot which you can see disintegrating in the muzzle flash.
As an X-ROD, it is essentially a large KE weapon with a discarding sabot, - a slimmer sabot than usual, but it has it's own rocket motor as well, which fires at 0.14.
I would be very surprised if the whole thing did not rotate, although the front cone does hold some guidance hardware - it can correct it's course in flight with impulse rockets.
As you say, an interesting one. No doubt the rocket is required to get the larger device to the same velocity as a 'standard' APFSDS round (mach 6)"

not a self-propelled missile. still damn cool and certainly lethal though

For this kinda shot, a rotating mirror is often used (less mass to sync).
