    Zp39

    Does anyone know or have one of these? it looks like a ZP39 and ZP39A ... markings are very basic.

    A couple of things I noticed. The 22 on the munition could be several different countries. The JIA on the ribbon looks familiar, but I can't place it.

    Any ideas?

    It appears to be a Russian copy of the M42 Submunition, Possibly a HEAT charge. The Russians have a habit of doing this as they did with the BLU-26 or Guva series (Russian copy: SHoAB 0.5)

    On all pictures I found on the net, I can read under ZP-39 the marking HD-1. Somebody known what it's meaning ?
