    Hi Harry,
    I was reading Fuzemans excellent write up tonight and he mentions that the 56 has little known information?
    Is this because it is a rare/experimental fuze?

    best

    Hi Harry
    The type (56) fuze according to Erhard Koch is designed for the 1,000Kg Bombenmine Bm1000jii but im not sure if this is correct
    The fuze has 2 circuits his is painted bright red on the top and a band of Red around the fuze body, his shows the two charging pins have been drilled.the one i have handled was painted standard lluftwaffe grey RAL2006 overall, and the pins were not drilled .
    the fuze head markings are ElAZ(56) I/06 bmv and batch 22
    There is nothing in the German archives on this bomb fuze
    one example was bought by a British collector the other example is with an American EOD man

    Hi Guys,

    Yes it is for the BM 1000 it works two ways for arming the bomb or if it lands on land to distroy the bomb.
    Regards Madbomber

    All Items of Live Ordnance posted by me have been disposed of by EOD.

    Hi thats interesting as the last (56) fuze i was offered was in exactly the same condition , it was too bad for me so i rejected it , it was bought by Dave Sampson about 4 years ago .
    I have a clock winding key marked (56) this is what started my interest in that fuze , but the key is the same as the (17)clockwork long delay .
    Ive just looked at the pictures of the one i was offered and its the same batch number and the corrosion is in the same place
