    P-4 771/B proximity bomb fuze, US

    Hello together,
    I want to introduce a rare experimental proximity nose bomb fuze, which was developed 1942/43 in the US.
    The nomenclature of this fuze was given by the BELL TELEPHONE LABORATORIES, where the development was carried out. The fuze was intended to be used for air-to-air bombing. The project was abandoned because of the lower priority given later in WW II to air-to-air weapons. The fuze body is made of brass and coated steel with a bakelite top ogive.
    Enjoy the images

    Steve,
    I don't have exact numbers, but surely not more than a couple of hundreds.
