Proposed 13,2mm bullet


#1

Does anyone know what this might be so I can flesh out the caption a little bit?

If anyone wants a higher resolution scan, just drop me a note.

I’d go for 13.2mm Hotchkiss.

Very interesting drawing.

Yes, it is for the 13.2mm Hotchkiss. Consideration was given to arming British fighters with 13.2mm Browning guns in the early years of the war and I believe one batch of Hurricanes were actually equipped with the 13.2mm.

I have a number of British drawings of various 13.2mm Hotchkiss projectiles, mainly explosive, produced during this investigation and also photographs of damage effect on test aircraft.
