    Is this a WWII Belgian 47mm AP Shell?

    Hi, is this shell a Belgian APC C47 shell? It really looks like it, however, the colour (original) doesn't match what I found, since the top of the ballistic cap and the body are red (sorry for the bad picture). Aren't the Belgian APC meant to be grey? And obviously, there's no markings at all. Thanks.

    Thanks a lot M8owner. Could you or someone confirm the colour of the body? I've seen grey on some and mine is definitely reddish. Thanks

    On your pictures I can see traces of the normal grey color. The red color can be the under lay of antirust paint.

    Thank you Yoda and M8owner, this is it, the red colour is the undercoat paint. Cheers.
