Unknow big shell


#1

Oups !! Sorry . There is another one.

Brass shell only
47 x 139 R, Rim 60 mm
Hstp : 47 R 8.6 - 16

On the UK website they say :
France, C19 Hotchkiss, WW2 Mle 1934 AFV

What means C19 Hotchkiss gun ?
From the hstp date it is a WWI gun.

Thanks
JP

19th century Hotchkiss revolving cannon, with five barrels - like a huge Gatling gun (although the mechanism was different). Usually fitted to warships as a defence against torpedo craft.
