Historical Significance:

The 57mm T23 Smoke Round was developed and used extensively during World War II, primarily designed for the M18 57mm recoilless rifle. The M18 was a revolutionary anti-tank weapon that provided infantry units with the ability to engage armored targets with significant firepower. The T23 Smoke Round played a crucial role in tactical operations, creating smoke screens to obscure troop movements, conceal positions, and mark targets. These smoke rounds were essential for providing cover during assaults, retreats, and other maneuvers, allowing Allied forces to maintain the element of surprise and reduce casualties from enemy fire.

Equipped with the T126 Dummy Fuze, this smoke round represents the training and preparation undertaken by military personnel. The dummy fuze was used in training exercises to simulate the handling and deployment of live smoke rounds without the associated risks, ensuring that soldiers were well-prepared for actual combat scenarios and enhancing their effectiveness in the field.
