    Minenaz16,

    According to AP1661B, only the early 2000lb bombs used the No.37 Fuze. The Mk IV and converted Mk.s II & III, used the No.30 Pistol.
    Strangely, there is no mention of the No.37 Fuze in British Bomb and Rocket fuzes.

    P.S. Just found this entry -

    The No. 37 series Fuzes differ from the No. 30 Series Fuzes in being longer to cater for different bomb tail sizes; as such the arming spindle is fitted with two universal joints.

    As I was searching details of No 37 special tail fuze, I learned there was another sister for No 30 : No 34 special tail fuze for AP 450lb.
    Another mysterious fuze

    yes, I have this documentation but no diagram of No34 and No37 tail fuzes (following pages on sap bombs show diagrams of No30 tail fuze).
    The author used to translate original US, British or German documentations.
    He likes ww2 german expertises and in this case German talked about an AP 1000lb and Belot mentionned it's a mistake made by German experts.
