    May I ask how you identify the incendiary part on No1 & 3 ?
    I thought incendiary was only if it had a green /blue band for self destruct?
    I have F.Petter book:- Munition fur deutsche Flieger Bordwaffen bis 1945 as reference and photos do not match. I have lots to learn .

    I would like your opinion on these explosive shells 13x64B.
    Which do you consider are incendiary? I am not sure myself. Ron.

    Bob, same question about identification of HEI.
    I thought 13mm HEI had a blue strip on top.
    Any Live or Dug ordnance shown by me has been disposed of by EOD personnel .

    I have an ID guide to Luftwaffe ammo from 13 mm upwards, including coloured diagrams of the projectile types. For the 13 mm it shows various colours for incendiaries:

    1. Yellow body with blue band under fuze = HEI-T without SD
    2. Yellow body with reddish-brown band above the driving band = HEI-T without SD (Can't help thinking there might be some confusion here)
    3. Blue body = incendiary
    4. Black pointed body with blue band around ogive (+ Ph for phosphorus)

    Pages from the scan of the book 'Handbuch der Flugzeug Bordwaffenmunition 1936 - 1945'. The pages cover the colouration of the projectiles for aircraft ammunition.
