    Barometric nose bomb fuze, us

    Here I want to introduce a barometric type nose bomb fuze, developed during WW II by the US. The upper fuze body is the converted M110 A1 nose bomb fuze, which acts as the arming mechanism. Underneath is the barometric construction located, all in a sheet metal housing.
    I don't know in which bombs this fuze was used but my guess is probably in cluster bombs, Illum, flares etc. On the side is the dial to set the height of burst. This fuze was probably only used for testing in experimental stage. There might have been a T-number assigned to it, which I don't know
    A rare fuze, which I have also seen with anemometer type vane assembly.
    Enjoy the image!
