Does anyone know if the 26.5mm diameter flare is available in 37mm length? Thanks Tom from MN

You mean today available for use or if such cases were ever made?

To the latter: yes.

This is an example of a 37 mm length 26.5 mm - cartridge. It was produced by the German company Berckholtz in the early fifties and start rockets for Line throwers.
