    Swiss fuze BZ37

    Hi,


    Who has informations about this (most probably) Swiss fuze BZ37 (drawings, ordnance used with, etc.)
    I think the symbol on the bottom is for "Sphinx Systems LTD" but there is not much online...

    The BZ37 was used in 6,5Kg, 12Kg, 50Kg and 200Kg bombs. It can be dropped with delay (0.5 sec) or without delay.

    Hello,
    Thanks for sharing.
    This fuze looks like inert manipulation version (marking MANIP and typical yellow-sand color).
    Regards
    Any Live or Dug ordnance shown by me has been disposed of by EOD personnel .
