    Oups

    I think I was a little to quick for answer. The air vane assembly for Mk 346 was my quick first reaction. I found now different models of tail fuzes air vanes. Have you some marking on your one ?
    One thing is sure, it's a arming air vane for US tail fuzes ! But I suppose that you knewn this !
    Wait, wait, wait,...

    Yoda,
    I'm away from my books at the moment, but it seems that there was a TM from about 1966 that had pretty good views of the different assemblies, an OP from about the same time frame also.
    All dug or live ordnance shown in my posts is under EOD control and has been or will be dealt with accordingly by EOD personnel

    Air vane

    Just too late, I have find the same doc as Hazord.
    The air vane can be part of any US modern tail fuze.
    I'm particular looking on air vanes with holes in the vane !
