    75mm Brandt

    Attached are a few pictures of a 75mm Brandt sabot. Unfortunatley there's not much left, the insides are missing and its been sectioned but there is enough remaining to give the general idea.
    I've attached what information I have - I've no idea where the info came from so apologies if I've pinched someones info.
    If anyone else has any further information - type of gun, type of shell case, photos of a complete projectile in their collection etc. I would be interested in hearing from them.
    Dave.

    Hi thanks for the additional information.
    The cap is magnesium not plastic - perhaps there were several types.
    Dave.

    Thanks Ben, yes, well happy - I seem to be getting lots of rare items recently (also 4.2cm squeezebore) that have had lumps cut out of them, would be even happier if they were not cut.
    Dave.

    Thanks Doctor, I misread what you said anyway. Yes we agree.

    Not actually cutaway, but a pic of original projectile. I think such photos are quite rare.
