26 mm zapłonnik do ratowniczego zestawu rakietowo-linowego / igniter cartridge for rocket line thrower
In the mid 60’s, a device for launching rescue rockets carrying a rope was developed. The system was based on wz.44 signal pistol and mounted on it a special cap that allows throwing rockets with a rope
A special cartridge with a load of black gunpowder was used to launch a rescue rocket with a rope. The amount of propellant charge was enough to create a flame that ignited the rocket engine. According to this de facto, he was not a propellant cartridge, although often referred to as the igniter, because the pressure of gunpowder gases did not allow the missile to be thrown as a projectile, especially since the cap’s construction had holes that did not form a closed barrel line. The rocket started off the instrument only after the launch of its own rocket engine.
