    German WW2 7,92mm Identification

    I have some Germanicon WW2 7,92mm cartridges in a MG81 belt and I believe a BESA belt.



    I would appreciate any help as to the kind of cartridges? a/p or tracer ? someone told
    me that these might be tropical issue too.

    Thanks, Robert

    'emp' is Dynamit A.-G., Werk Empelde, (formally Alfred Nobel & Co.), Empelde, Germanyicon.
    Trace supposedly(there seemingly were several styles of bullet marking) had the red ring, but should have a yellow tip, I think. AP had a black ring with a black tip. Seems to vary a lot by when it was made.
    I don't think 'tropical' was a consideration. Dunno for sure.
    Spelling and Grammar count!

    received an email from my old friend Tom-in-NJ and he said both variations are Germanicon Tropical
