I think russian 122 mm.
I see 122 mm O-462A HE shells and SH-460T schrapnell shells with T-6 fuze (the pointy one) and some with old WW1 pyrotechnic time/P.d. fuze.

Hi all,

A Flak shell. Probably, an 8.8cm Flak round although it is possible an 10.5cm Flak round too....

Stur,


I guess a 28 cm K5, short brass case, additional charge and a splined shell.enough for an average judge.
