    Hi,
    No of course,
    This fuze, and bomb was find long time ago on old Russian airfield storage area, with many other stuff. I find a lot russian AM-A fuzes (and similar) but with
    safety pin like in this one, only ones.

    Regards.

    Apologies for opening up an old thread. I have one of these things and still I'm puzzled as to how it works. All the spinner does is get unscrewed while the bomb is falling. Won't the bomb explode with or without the spinner attached (assuming it hits a sufficiently hard target)?

    This one is for the RS-82 only. The length of the wires was in accordance to the caliber of the regarding rocket since the wires were guided in the launch rail.

    often found these on the RAB-3.5 frag bombs and adapted 82mm mortar shells. these were still in use during nineties in former Yugoslavia. it was not uncommon to found fuse with safety cap and wane broken off.
