Is this a German version of the British Limpet Mine fuze?

That probably would not work anyway. If you replace the explosive material in the head with ball bearings, how would it explode? Even reducing 1/2 of the explosive would really lower the explosive...

Here is an example from my collection. This one is an El.A.Z.55...
