    Here is a missile nose cone that I've had since the 70s. I have no clue as to what this ordinance was used by... Jet, helicopter, etc. Maybe somebody can help with that. One of the pictures shows a wire on the inside of the tip.

      This would be for a shaped charge which principle requires that the charge fire at a short distance from the armor, etc.. The wires would be to close the circuit to the ignition cap & charge when the tip hit. This is a really early version.

      Do you have any idea about what year these were in use blunderbuss?
    5. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 7 years ago
      Hey, I'm no student of this sort of thing. The locking slots to fit the charge would indicate very early. We know pre late 70's from you. I could only guess, maybe 50's-60's. A length would help. It certainly isn't artillery, so must be for a low velocity projectile that may be shoulder/hand fired. maybe a bazooka it it is only 4-6" long. There are surely people here who are better qualified than me.
    6. Jono Jono, 7 years ago
      It's 20 inches in length and 6 inches across at the locking slots.

      WOW! I kept trying to imagine the dog as really big & it never worked. The only thing I can imagine, is for under wing aircraft missiles. Glad to know the dawg is the size I 1st thought.
