German 7,5cm Granate 38 Hollow-Charge Shell (drawing)


#1

Another hollow charge shell using a nose fuze to provide ignition, via a tube, for a base mounted gaine, thus detonating the main charge.

Happy collecting, Peter


#2

Peter, did you intend to show the same image twice?


#3

errr … no.

I could have sworn there was only one image immediately after I submitted it. My mouse finger must have been twitching for some reason.

Peter


#4

Ah, and I thought now you might have intended to show 2 different ones.


#5

No, it was just a mistake on my part … but, now you mention it, here’s another view from a different series.

This one has a frustrum and a tracer component.

Happy collecting, Peter
