    Czech / German Fuze

    So this is listed a Czech made, but a German Dopp Z. 21 ... not sure what to think. I see nothing to make this German. The writing on the fuze falls in line with Czech stuff I have seen. And the striker on the nose depresses.

    Interesting if nothing else ....

    Dia: 69MM
    Length: 154MM
    Length with striker depressed: 130MM
    Expose length: 124MM
    Exposed length with striker depressed: 110MM

    Hello,
    German gave a designation when they captured these czech fuzes (Doppz 21 t).

    I take this post to ask something.
    I noticed a difference of graduations on czech (german use) fuzes 10cmvz21 I found in France (czech designation : 10cm ostrý dvojitý časovací granáty zapalovač vzor 21).
    -230 : with marking 10cmvz21
    -240 : with marking 10cmvz21n (not sure about the "n").
    What is the difference between these fuzes ?

    Regards

    Thanks to my friend Jan I have an answer what the letter n means.
    In 1923-1924 manufacture was started using the new normalised measurments.
    To distinguish the new ammunition index n has been added to the designation.

    Did the German's remark the fuze with their designation? I am curious to see one if they did.

    Question ... So the images provided by Minenaz16 show 2 different settings:
    1 goes to 238
    1 goes to 248
    So, prior to 1924 fuzes would have been the 238 version with anything made after that to 248? Any known reason to add the more time?

    Joe
