    I have this old German 77mm shell, not really my area of interest and not sure what it is other than a boat tailed HE projectile made by Krupp with an alloy EKZ 16c fuze, The fuze is very tight and i have not been able to remove it, well not tried very hard as dont want to damage the alloy, obviously repainted at one point. Can anyone add anymore info on it type / use.

    It's a C-Geshoss for the FK16 gun, with what looks like an EKZ16C fuze. That's the only boat tail projectile of the 7.7cm family and it was meant to be used in the longer barrel FK16 only, presumably with these cases which don't show any crimping marks. The maximum range was 10,600 meters, a lot more than that of a K.Gr.15 Geshoss fired with Charge #2 (super). I have been after one for years, so if you decide to part with it, I'll find a very good home for it.
