    Ax mk 3

    Does anyone know anything about these?

    I have seen one as UK and another where they said it was Belgium. I am assuming GD is UK.

    They were dispensed by a launcher, of sorts. Anti-sub thing. Helped SONAR in some way. There is a thread on here somewhere about all that.

    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

    you can see the Belgian used version in my collection (the one from the thread Rick mentions) here : http://212.178.67.161/ftp/20mmcollec...f_GR_Sweep.pdf

    You can see that the Belgian made (or UK made but Belgian imported/used) model has a slightly altered shape.
