    WW2 GERMAN NAVY (KREIGSMARINE) 37mm (37 x 381mm R)

    I'm interested in this unusual 37mm but am not familiar with it so I'm hoping I can get some education here.

    With the Naval weapons page it is stated that:

    "1a: Later in the war, there was also a mine round developed for this gun. This had the same good ballistics but carried a more potent 125g HE filler at the expense of reducing the tracer element (1200m instead of 4800m)."

    Has anyone ever seen this type of projectile, or even a description? I've never even heard of it.

    Regards, DJH

    I went ahead and got the KM shell note the size difference when compared to a flak 37x263 belted case round.
