    From my experience with aircraft wrecks, I can say it does look like generic aircraft debris. What looks like a part of a radiator, engine mount and and a drive chain. Think a few of those parts are from ground vehicles.

    Ammo could be identified if we have measurements, and any head stamps.

    I believe, that the last pictures, are of feed trays, for a machine cannon.

    The cartridges match the 2cm MG151/20 and 13mm MG131 in shape and size. The feed tray is the correct size for the 2cm MG151/20, although I don't see anything like it in the exploded view photo I have of the cannon. Still, I don't think anyone else used ammunition of the same length, so that kind of has to be it.
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...
