This gun use regular US 5"/54 Cal. separated ammunition (127x835R plugged case) but if you are in France I guess that it would be easier to find an example made in Italy by Bombrini Parodi-Delfino. Regards, Fede.

In the beginning of the loading process the shell and the case are separately loaded inside the two lower hoists of the ammunition magazine. After that, the shell rests on top of the case plug until it is loaded in the chamber, which may lead to the impression that you are looking at a complete round.
