Pyrotechnic Initiated Explosives PIE ammunition is considered to contain a mechanical in-line fuze. Such systems are in principle similar to unshuttered electrically and mechanically initiated explosive systems currently in serivce. Design principles have been proposed for mechanical in-line fuzes. Tests are in hand to evaluate Raufoss 20 mm MP70 ammunition against these principles to determine safety and suitability for service.
