Smart shells using target prediction guidance and gun tube ATGM

#1
Maybe not the most balanced suggestion, but it might be nice for gun-tube style APS shells?

At the back of your shell you could place a rocketeer, and perhaps fuel casings could be added, which reduce muzzle velocity but build it up over time?

Using a nose that is overall very easily detectable and countered with low HP and AP, the shell could use the stabiliser fins to guide itself rudimentarily if the target stays within a small (10-25 degree) cone in front of itself.

I imagine the efficiency of the fins would follow a parabolic curve. At very high or low speeds it would not work well, while only at medium speeds it would perform optimally.
