    Hi....I also would like info on this shell. I have only seen one with two driving bands and the le FH 18 utilized ammunition with only one driving band.
    Did it really exist for the le FH 18 ?

    Hallo,
    The HDv 119/151,156 and 337 have the same text in the Attachments 14 resp. 11 (please see the pic).
    Nice diagram is in Waffenrevue No 61.

    Thank you Nabob.... the book says one existed for the le FH 18. Has anyone ever seen one of these ? I would like so much to see a picture of one. Is the shell with the double driving bands utilised for le FH 18 or is it a shell with only one driving band? Thank you for your reply and your knowledge. Wonderful site.

    Here is the page from H.Dv. 481-27 Merkblatt für die Munition der 10,5cm Sturmhaubitze 42 (1944)
    Two driving bands. Did not find one yet
    There are several in the collections.
