    The whole A.Z.35K was an invention of Krupp (Artilleriekonstruktionsb├╝ro Wilck). The clockwork-patens were held by Gebr. Thiel and not by Krupp. The relation between Krupp and Thiel is still not really clear for me.

    The Fg clockwork comes from Junghans. I don't understand where is the relation to the A.Z.35k or Krupp or Rheinmetall?


    About the patents: This fuze was ordered by the government and it was during war. It was common practise that if two competiting companies would not work together than the government paid possible license fees directly. This way they bought the right to let the patented part be produced by a different company of their choice . Such contracts were restriced to war-time or for a specific order. The normal way was that the companies paid license fees directly to the patent owner. Gebr. Thiel received license fees from most companies which were producing their clockworks.

    Do you know if the clockworks for this fuze were produced in S├Âmmerda or if they were delivered ready made from another clockworkmanufacturer ?
