    Very nice Waff.

    Some day may be I will be lucky and find a projectile to go with my KwK43 case.

    Of course you know you will need a AZ23/28 fuse.

    Thanks Waff.

    One way of how not to remove a projectile

    The AZ23 was for lower velocity projectiles. Hopefully someone will have a picture of the 23/28

    Hi Waffy,
    SG is quite correct, you'll need an AZ23/28 fuze which, as far as can tell is identical in appearance externally to the AZ23 you have on that projectile. I think the AZ23 was used in lower velocity projectiles...heres a pic.

    Its still a gorgeous round waffy....Im pretty sure they're my favs in my collection

    Cheers Rich,good shot there.
    i do like the eagle on that one.
    Am i likely to find a fuze for it or will it be a quest?

    thanks

    Waff

    The C/28 (I think) is for a marine projectile
    The Igr Z 23na is for an Infantry gun like the le IG 18.

    Yes I bought the 8,8cm case like that. I could never afford a mint condition one.

    Well, as it turns out, the KWK43 HE was one of the very first rounds I purchased..and wasn't aware of the significance of the AZ23/28 fuze at the time. (ignorance is a theme I'm still fighting with)

    I have read several times that its quite rare, but I really can't comment...SG, whats you're view?

    Rich
