After WWII Beobachtung 7.92


#1


Intersting box of beobachtung rounds remanuctured after WWII.
The bullets are blackened on the bottom like late german rounds and silver painted like early german rounds.


#2

Great box you have.
Yugoslavia relaoded German projectiles after the war.


#3

These are WW2 German type B patrone’s loaded into Yugo cases and with a silver tip added for ID.


#4

There are also “silver tip only” ones, seems the Yugos took both German types and applied silver tips to the blackened ones as well to get a unified marking…


#5

What does the box actually say?


#6

I have not seen the silver tip only version but would like to take one apart compare to the typical German version.

Do you think that the Yugos actually made some of these projectiles ?

According to Woodin labs the plain silver tips have not shown up. Do you know of actual specimens?

Hi!

The Yugos never manufactured this kind of B projectiles themselves but reloaded a good number of German bullets acquired (or found) after the end of WWII , on yugo-made cases, after repainting the tip in silver.

On this box (several did show up here at the time of first UNO interventions in Kosovo), the label reads:

15 pieces

7,9 mm cartridges

with explosive-incendiary “EZ”
-remounted bullets-

bez okvira = without clips

Powder(Barut)= NC (nitrocellulose ) -05 (powder type) Ser. 5439 = Lot 39, 1954

Lab.ser. powder making characteristics (lot) 1/1955

Rata 2= regrouping of powder lots
11(in a square) =november

1955 g =1955 goda = year (of manufacture) 1955. (This concerns the manufacture of the complete cartridge before packing).

The Yugos used many obsolete foreign ammo, repacked. I own a cardboard box of 8x59 FIAT BREDA repacked with superb cyrillic label!

Some full crates of this ammunition have shown up here in the US recently with the importation of large amounts of standard ball ammunition. Seems that a few slipped past the guys loading the shipping containers…
