    looks like it might be part of a dummy round for training purposes? i'm not well versed on munitions but that would be my guess. especially with traces of red paint.

    Makes sense to me. I remember using them in the A.T.C when I was 13.
    But I can't remember if ours were painted or had coloured tape on them.
    All I remember is I was the only one who hit my targets and getting a can of coke for it.

    Picture of a M39 Brixia (Breda) mortar attached.

    From what I remember, red denoted a live round, not a dummy.

    Bill posted some of these a while ago. Here's the link.

    Hi there,

    They go for around $200 in Australia. The ones pictured have a white band around the top, this signifies a reduced explosive charge for training. The "war" rounds had a red band around the top. All had red fins etc. Hope this helps?
