    Russian WWII 120mm Mortar

    This photo is for sale on ebay; however, I see so few photos of Russian ordnance from WWII that I thought I would preserve this here. I believe that is an M50 fuse in the nose.

    IMO the fuze is GVMZ, not M50.

    I just took delivery of a 1944 dated Russian 120mm mortar round. It has the correct fuse, and I repainted it.

    Here is a Polish training bomb made in the 1950's - probably in Russia. Notice the fuse is threaded and has a protector now. About 30 of these were in with all the Polish training ordnance that showed up in the US over the last few years.
