Well I got a russkie/Soviet B11 107mm which needs some ammo on its base with the crew.

But I havent found any pictures on how the projectile actually looks.
Is it a huge shell, bazooka rocket or something else?

The Aussies seem to put tubes but thats a US 106mm (?).


Any help would be appreciated!

Not sure if this will help. From what I remember, as they were phasing it out when I firstr joined, the 106 casing was full of perforations for the gasses to escape. Googled a little and came up with this to explaine the theory and I see I remembered correctly. Not bad for almost 40 years ago. Smile



Got to work today, but will loook further tonight.

try here dont really have time to go thru it all

The Wikipedia listing has an image of a shell- but with Wiki, you never know.

Who make the B11 in 20mm anyway? I need a few for my Gyppo commandos.
