This patent describes a fuze utilizing both point detonation and controlled variable time detonation that arms the point detonation apparatus at the same time the controlled variable time detonation apparatus is armed. Addition of a commutator and associate wiper in the controlled variable time arming circuit of a controlled variable time fuze, and placement of the point detonation arming switch across the firing capacitor and electric primer, prevents point detonation until controlled variable time arming occurs.
