    ID These!!

    Hello there, Some good stuff here and id really like to see that Hawker Hunter wreck with the rockets spilling out the wing pod lol!! Noticed some 30mm Aden Target Practice shells, 2inch Illumination mortar case and 30mm Aden cannon. I nearly bought a 30mm Aden cannon once, complete and deactivated at 400-a bargain! Prob was it was in Scotland so couldnt get up there to pick it up! Nice pix though mate! Best Regards, Tim.

    I like the shot of the Aden gun maintenance area.

    You have 2 Russian PTAB-2.5 submunitions in the photo next to the 2 inch mortar illum body.

    You also have a U.S. 81mm Mortar illum body reassembled and repainted gray, missing its fuze.

    The "rustball" has the shape of a possible grenade inside (pineapple shape).

    Exclamation SNEB/BE Smk

    And to add to the 30mm ADEN Practice round the other two pictured are most likely 25mm Oerlikon Practice Tracer projectiles that look like the tracer unit has not been "rolled" into the base.
    The Rockets are 68mm SNEB Practice.
    And the last Mortar is a 3" BE Smoke mortar with No 199 fuze or equivalent.
    Nice items !
    Thanks for showing us.
