20mm Hispano Suiza HE projectiles (drawings)


What is a ‘crash type’ projectile and why?

Also, spot the draughtsman’s error.

If anyone wants a higher resolution scan, just drop me a line.



It seems to be more of a crash type base fuze if I got it right. Seems that the brass plug behind the detonator acts like a striker (which is crashing the detonator).


Tracer?? JH


It is a converted tracer projectile body.
