    Hello

    I took these pictures in England 10 years ago already.
    At the time, I did not pay attention to the bizarre side of the fuze.
    The device on top, with the spring is abnormal.
    But it doesn't resemble any known model n41, 67 or 70.
    Have you an idea ?
    Sorry, I have only these two views.

    Thank you

    At first glance i thought that they were Ameican M130 fuzes for their SD2 copy the M83 , but the more i look at these i think they are the bodies of the German butterfly bomb fuzes and are experimental fuzes , for what purpose nobody knows

    I was looking through past posts when I came across this. I may be able to shed new light on the identification of this fuze. See the thumbnail below. I believe it to be a type 67/v minus its outer casing (which would have resembled the z 17bm. fuze)


    HPIM4802.jpg

    This fuze was a 67 fuze that had been modified (notice the shoulder that would have held the steel spring clip in the original 67 fuze has been ground down in the original photograph)
    The fuze was used in the Mk AB 70 container to ignite candle units within the container. Could also be used in any H.E. bomb with standard fuze pocket as a delay action fuze.
