It is the only tank ammunition in the world capable of defeating an air target.

I read that link article and was surprised to see that it is claimed that the Abrams is the 'only tank in the world' that can down a helicopter with it's main armament firing a certain type of ammunition.
Can this be true? Is this not wishful thinking? Can't the target simply fly away - upwards, sidewards or downwards? How can the gunner keep track and on target? Does the Abrams now fire guided munitions from it's main gun?

How would the gunner even line up the gun with the air target? Unless they have laser sight.
