Anyone have any idea what this mine is? German model perhaps?

German U-Bootmine Typ A (UMA) or Typ B (UMB)

You might verify this by comparing the following features:
* Diametre of cupola 80 cm (UMA) or 84 cm (UMB)
* 1 lead acid horn on top
* 4 lead acid horns equally spaced around the upper hemisphere
* 3 electric switch-horns equally spaced around the lower hemisphere

Thanks, but it doesn't have a hydrostatic switch.
