Hello, I have a 20mm round that my Grandfather brought home from WWII and after trying to figure out exactly what it is unsuccessfully, I was wondering if anyone here would know more about it? The projectile has sort of a greyish paint on it.
It only let me post one picture, so here is the photo of the headstamp.
Hello and welcome.
You have a 20 mm Oerlikon round.
Not my area of expertise but I believe that the grey projectile indicates HE-T (high explosive - tracer). The fact that it is empty is good (safe). Is there a cavity in the base of the projectile?
I don’t know enough about the fuze but those more knowledgeable about this will chime in.
