    Pretty sure that it is a dispenser fuze, but I cannot remember the model off the top of my head and I'm just about to hit the road for the day. Sorry.

    Sir;
    Can you post additional photos of opposite side and top? It is a nice fuze and perhaps members would like to see more of it.
    Best Regards,
    John aka Bart

    Chilean fuze is correct detail. There are two versions of this type fuze. Am seeking further photos.
    Location found is Basrah province.

    The Iraqi Air Force had the Chilean CB-500 Cluster Bomb into which this fuze fits, at the time of the first Gulf War. They transported a number of the bombs to Kuwait during the occupation - some were left at Ali Al Salem Air Base - I have photos of them somewhere.

    A number of the loaded dispensers purchased by the Iraqis were never intended to be dropped. The submunition carried was the PM-1. The Iraqis had an experimental program running where they were downloading the PM-1 submunitions and pulling the fuzes. The were then attempting to use the fuzes in an experimental 1.5L chemical submunition. It was a very crude effort, but interesting regardless.
