Abstract:

The M759 fuze spitback was prevented from dislodging during setback by a spitter crimp. Should the spitter crimp fail, the spitback could release during setback and strike the liner, resulting in a premature or inbore function. The base of the M759 fuze was redesigned to be loaded from the top end to eliminate the spitter crimp. In this manner the spitback charge is kept from dislodging during setback by a machined spitback charge holder piece.
