    Thanks. My collection of Japanese inert ordnance pales in comparison to several others I have seen but I pick up what I can. The APFSDS is the 125mm. I bought it at the Tulsa gun show several years ago early in the morning. I was riding with friends and had no access to their car until we left so I got to carry it around for 7 hours at which time both arms were 1/4" longer. It is surprisingly heavy......

    Wow, that is one hell of a fantastic collection!

    In the 5th set of photos, 6th photo, what is the long dart like item on the chest, infront of the 57mm rocket? Looks interesting!

    Thank you.
    The item is marked as HEAD ROCKET HE 35M/M T2023E1 INERT LOADED LOT PA-51-1 7-54 INERT

    US SUBS pointed me in the direction of the Loki Dart program as a possibility for it's identification. I think Jeff hit it dead on. Attached below is a little information from a document I found on the internet.

    The source document says it can reach altitudes of 115km, which is actually in space. There seems to be at least 2 sizes of booster rockets.

    Veterans Day Remembrance Display 2018

    This weekend has been busy with setting up a display of WW I and WW II inert ordnance at the local VFW Post 112 in Wichita Ks. We had 3 veterans speak about their experiences during WW II and Vietnam. This is truly a time to reflect on those who have served our country and the world in the name of peace and freedom.
    Pictured below is a nice sampling of the wide variety of ordnance used during these 2 wars.
