What can you tell me about this 25x163mm (?)


I have a pair of these that were brought back from WWII by an uncle that spent most of his time in the Indian and Pacific Oceans.

As you can see, there is no headstamp. The only markings I could find were on the fuse. I’m assuming they are Japanese, but any specific information on the markings would be appreciated.


This is a japanese Typ 96-2 for a 25mm Hotchkiss Navy AA gun.


Thank you. Any insight into the markings on the fuze?
