    4cm Aluminium nose fuze (Bofors)

    Hello,

    In attachment , two images of the mentioned fuze. I had the following question in regards to it : What nationality is this one? Aluminium , markings : "UV" or "VU" (possibly factory marking?)

    Thank you

    I only know the designation of the brass model for 4cm : "Pillanatgyújtó 38/40M SR"
    Your aluminium version could have another designation (xx/40M)

    Ah yes, from what I remember the aluminium one is 42/40AM , I was confused due to the other 42AM I posted. Thanks by the way!
