This is true, but other projects have actually started to test printing the actual explosives and the rest of the warhead.
This is very likely to the sort of silver bullet that vastly increases lethality, decreases weight, and results in what should be cheaper better
weapons that go where they're meant to, have less likelihood of being duds, and are likely much safer to things like mortar crews etc.
It will be weird to see ammunition blowoff panels and etc go the way of the dodo and the tank still chugging along decades after the most recent
greatly exaggerated reports of it's demise.
