    TNT is mentioned in documentation and I saw a real one, opened, with a yellow-sand block like TNT

    Hello,
    will be nice to see the internal arrangement, there was 3 variant known, one as MINEN showed, other one with simplified fragmentation with cutted metal and the last with fragmented body.
    also exhist the incendiary one.

    Here is mine. The rusted coiled steel piece in the second photo came from a dig in northern Ethiopia. A large number (1200+) of Italian pieces - 75mm, 65mm etc. had been recovered from a burial site (new school foundation). A couple of suspect air ordnance components were recovered, also found were 5-6 of these coils. As they reminded me of the submunition I saved one.
