Abstract:

Approximately 210 fuzes were subjected to various laboratory and field tests. The safety mechanism assembly was found to be effective in keeping the fuze safe during the situation in which the head may be made to tumble, such as accidental release from aircraft. The fuze had satisfactory durability and resistance to damage during transportation and rough handling tests. The reliability was good. The fuze was effective against ground, concrete targets up to 3 feet thick, and targets simulating wall, roof, and floor construction of typical industrial buildings.
