    Luftwaffe 20mm

    Enclosed are pics of a Luftwaffe 20mm with a blue, green, and purple color. I'm not familiar with this color code and am hoping the forum can help me out. The shell casing appears to be original to the projectile but has no Luftamt.

    You have an Incendiary, Dim ignition tracer with self destruct, Tropic loading. Z 1528 fuze. Glimmspur have a darker red than the day tracers and the blue fuze means fur Tropen or tropical load. There is also a 1528A fuze. Hope this helps. Ron.
