    Some fuze diagrams that hopefully help - the 218 and the 224 are the ones with the gel bags.

    Thanks, Evo99. for those superb images. Where did you find them? Also, does anyone know how "Random Times" were achieved. Perhaps different grades of silicone gel were usd in the gel bags, which were then mixed together before assembling. Or was it just that the timing device was very irregular in action?

    Pleasure. These images are from an FFE collection. I believe the time delay was a function of different viscosity levels of the silicone gel as you say but am not 100%. The randomness would come from the different ambient temperatures in any given location I suppose.

    DJ, my data does not show the golfball type submunitions being carried in the Lance missile, though they were in numerous rocket warheads and may have been in the Bullpup missile.

    M38s, M40s and M32s could be either dispenser dropped or released from warheads. The MK5 Mod 0 dispenser (MK 15 cluster) carried 2020 M40s, or 2020 M38s as the MK22 cluster (Sadeye). The SUU-30 carried 2025. My favorite is the SUU-24, it carried 38,520. The Honest John submunition warhead carried 4800 of the M38/M40 or 3093 of the M32.

    The M32 used the M212 fuze, the M38 used the M218 fuze and the M40 used either the M219 or the M291E1 fuze. The M219 series is impact only. The M218 has an internal sack filled with viscous fluid, when the fluid is forced out it fires.

    Here are some of my golfball variations, plus my Honest John submunition warhead - behind the other little pieces..
    Does anybody have any info about the M212 fuze used in the M32?
    Thanks in advance,
    Regards, DJH
