    Only the Feldhaubitzgranate with A.Z.23 v. (0.15) and the 10cm Gr. 39 rot HL/A (shaped charge).

    The case was separately loaded of course.

    10 cm Granate 39 rot Hohlladung A
    10 cm Granate 39 rot Hohlladung B
    10cm Weiß-Rot Geschoß
    10 cm Panzergranate
    Feldhaubitzgranate Brand

    Exerzier Feldhaubitzgranate Buntrauch
