I want share with you this italian oddity
as you can see shell was a french mod 1888 modified infuze hole and base;
here close to mod 88
fuze is very similar to the one used on FIAT 25,4mm HE shell
Internal stucture completely different with twin security ( 25,4mm FIAT is the right one)
last element the base, completely new built and with alluminium cylinder screwd in, this system was used on other itlaian shell loaded with ballistite for hold detonator;
in this pic close to 70/15 mod 1902 HE shell detonator holder
No info on this item, maybe never reach the mass production, could be a only a prototype.
any info appreciated
Any Live or Dug ordnance shown by me has been disposed of by EOD personnel .
thank you, completely forgot this one. Unfortunely not in my hand for compare. But look same fuze
thanks a lot!
The French tracers were made by Semple in Pittsburgh U.S.A.
