first 20mm hispano round

I found this on a farmers field about 6 inches down in my home town of Deventer Holland, after cleaning it up in my celler then I could see what I had, I found it was a live Hispano round, fired from a type of gun on wheels and should explode on impact like a grenade, inside this 8cm long projectile are some fantastic workings, hit the head, a capsule with acetone breaks inside and bang. I learnt this from the internet. Needless to say the authorities picked it up and I will always be apologising to my wife for bringing it home. DON'T TOUCH WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW

My wife said, OK Dave it's the MXT or me, what a stupid thing to say, It cost me 20 euro's to get her to the train station!
