    Ww1 German 25cm sprengmine

    Hello,

    I'm looking for information on this long sprengmine (picture 1)
    This picture from the net says it's a Voith minenwerfer but 26cm Voith tube I know is different (and mines are different too)

    I know a short 25cm version with same shape (picture 2 and 3)

    Regards

    Thanks al'saad but I don't talk about these 25cm mortar shells (often found in France) but other series with basic construction, made of sheet metal (and wood), without driving band, and a top handle.

    Ok, sorry again for picking up such an really old thread, but the shell seems to be one from an Erdmörser and really has no connection to the Voith Minenwerfer

    Yup, thats what I mean. The „coal buckets“ were used by the erdmörser, the most simple version of any German mörser

    Two models known with cone and handle, short and long.
    Know as "schwere Sprengmine für Erdmörser & Albrecht mörser"/"Koleneimer mit Kegel"
