    Hello,

    This shell looks like a German WW2 15.2cm Sprgr. (HE).
    As far as I'm aware these shells were made by German with Few driving band to be used with Russian captured guns.

    15cm AZ Gr37 (t) (German made Czech shell) could match to (but more streamlined than 15.2cm sprgr).

    Regards

    My guess (without any proofs) would be also a German made HE for the Russian 15,2cm howitzer.

    Hello,

    thanks! The driving band confused me. I got this from a old men 30 years ago and he say: Its from a german ammo dump for "Beutemunition" from the cz, italy and french Army.
    The brass have many lead (pb) and now this white powder, i think its built before the ww2.

    I found here more pictures: https://reibert.info/threads/snarjad...li-152.414594/
    The cutaway its from http://www.wk2ammo.com/showthread.ph...m-KH-433-1-(r)

    No it isn't. These shells were made for captured russian 15 cm Gun-Howitzers so they can't be from before the war. The manufacturing date is stamped on the shell, you should be able to find it.


    The second picture you posted with the czechoslovakian shell isn't your shell.
