    Besa projs

    Rick - very nice selection of experimental British projs. If I had found them I certainly would not have given them back!

    The two .5 calibre steel projs are part of a series that ere developed mid war to try to increase penetration ovedr the US made AP rounds then in service. I have an example also that is different to yours and I have seen others. I will post a picture later.

    I also think I might have a drawing of the 15mm Explosive round. I will check and if so post that as well.

    Regards
    Tony

    .5

    I have checked my drawings and unfortunately I do not have one for the 15mm explosive proj. I have ones for H.E, shell for the .661", .75" and .8" guns, but these are all internally base fused types.

    Your one may have been intended for the necked down 20/15mm Hispano rather than the BESA, but either way it is a very nice item.

    Regards
