I have a German WW2 7.5cm round that is a bit of a mystery.
It doesn’t have the usual fuze associated with this round,but has what looks like an unmarked 3.7cm flak fuze which screws into an adaptor,then into the top of the projectile.
The base of the adaptor is threaded on the inside for a booster charge maybe?
I have been informed that if this is a 3.7cm fuze when the round was fired the fuze wouldn’t arm so the projectile wouldn’t explode,I thought that is maybe why the adaptor has a thread,possibly for a booster charge,but have also been informed that even if it did have a booster charge that the fuze still wouldn’t arm.
So,what do I have here?
Is it an experimental round,or a case of using what was available at the end of the war?
Or,has a collector manufactured the adaptor and stuck a 3.7cm fuze on until he can get the correct fuze?
All help appreciated with this as I’m stumped!
