    I believe the change in the letters after 25 indicates internal modifications usually a change in a resistor that can either delay or lenghten time it takes to arm the fuze or to fire the fuze.

    The (25) B can be used against Sea and Land targets.
    Repleaced the (25) A* and the (35)*.

    Thats correct guys the difference between the A and the B is internal changes, the (25) series fuzes were generally used for land targets and the 8 series ie (28) were for hardened targets Ie Shipping use .where a delay was required to enter the ships deck before exploding .
    See Fuzes a laymans guide sorry i cant work out how to put in a link on here

    Dave Does the fuze look longer than the normal (25) series and is it wider at the bottom if not its a normal (25) series fuze the y being batch letter?
