    Anti-Aircraft ammunition

    Guys,
    Was there any 65mm (2.5") ammunition made for British AA guns and if so does anyone have any information? Thanks

    65mm Oerlikon

    Hi, this is the only post WW2 projectile I've ever come across in 65mm.
    I understand its an Oerlikon.
    The stampings on it say:

    "167 400 32 79 E838"

    It has a plastic band.
    I have no idea about the colours or even if they are original.
    The 30mm Gau 8 projectile gives you an idea of scale.
    Both are inert of course!!
    Does anyone have any further information on it?
    Dave
