    2 cm Flak fuze for HE-T round identification

    Greetings,

    Yesterday this forum was recommended to me so this is my first post.

    I am trying to find information about this fuze for a high explosive tracer 2 cm flak round. It is dated 1937 and was sent to Spain for the Civil war so I assume it is an early variant. Any information about it is appreciated.

    If the pictures aren't clear enough all the markings are:

    mM
    RhS
    37
    WaA 424
    3e

    Hi, thanks for the information.

    I have just noticed that the projectile has this marking:

    IMG_4247.jpg

    From what I have seen most of 20x80RB projectiles have this marking unlike 20x138 ones so it makes sense that it is a 20x80RB projectile inside a 20x138 cartridge case.

    Was this marking used only for Luftwaffe ammunition?

    All the shots used by the Luftwaffe * aircraft * have that logo stamped between them the 20x80RB and the 20x82.The 20x138RB do not carry them.
    Municion enviada a EspaƱa por el plan bar para armar los Bf-109E-4 en la guerra civil esa municion no era todavia empleada por esos aviones.
