    litle beast ( 14" projectile)

    Hi all, I want to show you this litle beast and ask a few questions. We have this projectile in our collection, it is a 14" shell, It should be a practice, can any one confirm this, who has more information and possible drawings of this and at last the markings. Thanks for any help.

    Question Practice or APCBC ?

    Hi blu97 that looks more like an APCBC with a "Hit" Flash charge in the windshield hence the screw for the fuze at the top ?

    Lovely item, should you need to get rid of it just let us now

    Well it has only one cap and the projectile is solid, and as you see on the drawing the projectile itself has a flat top.
