Swiss (German) 20mm Oerlikon fuze (drawing)


#1

More from the files in Leeds.

Happy collecting, Peter

Just a side note. The drawing shoud be named something like “Oerlikon fuze in German use” since this type was only imported from Switzerland (or found on captured ammunition) and not made in Germany.

Would that explain the lack of markings noted on the drawing?

German made items are usually well scattered with inspection markings and their absence was thought worthy of mention.

Correct, the Swiss did very little to no stencilling.
