I was contacted a while ago asking for help to ID and unknown piece of inert/empty ordnance. To me it looks like some kind of mortar or fin stabilized HEAT round of some type. Thew part that is so puzzling to me is the it has a flat, forward facing, screw off lid? Something I have not seen before. Anyone have any thoughts? Copying his e-mail provided information. Unfortunitky, he does not have the easy ability to obtain more photos.
“Way back in September, I emailed you asking if you could help me identify a round I found. At that time I only had two pictures of it. You suggested that I get more and if I sent them to you you’d see if it provided more information for you. It’s been a while since September but I sort of had to ride out the pandemic…as did you too I’m sure. So, here are more pictures. Base dimensions are projectile is 75MM in diameter and the whole round is 18 1/2 inches long. There are absolutely not markings anywhere. Any help/guesses/thought that you could offer would be greatly appreciated. I thank you very much for your help. Stay well.”
