    Default Rheinmetall 20-mm

    I came across these 20-mm projectiles. I can't find any information (type, name/nomenclature) except I believe they were manufactured by Rheinmetall. Can any one assist with information?

    Hey,

    20x138/B indeed developped by Rheinmetall.
    These rounds are: Panzergranate Patronen Lichtspur, or, in english: AP-T rounds. Simple solid shot with tracer.

    The rounds are commonly associated with use in the Solothurn S18-1000 Panzerbüchse (AT-rifle).
    The yellow coloured one may have been produced for Sweden, I recall they had a yellow AP type in their inventory.

    Regards, Menno.

    P.s. please drop me a line iff you ever wish to sell the yellow one.

    Both were in Swedish inventory and there in particular for use with the S18-1000.

    The brown one is the TP-T.
