Pagination or Media Count:
This patent discloses a projectile fuze device selectively adjustable to allow either point detonation PD or delayed detonation of the explosive charge of a projectile upon impact with the target. In the PD option the selector assembly permits the centrifugal movement of the alignment assembly during projectile flight to align the PD detonator in the fuze explosive train. In the delayed detonation option the delay detonator in the alignment assembly is aligned in the fuze explosive train prior to firing with subsequent centrifugal movement prevented by the selector assembly.
