    Looking For A Cutaway Diagram Of US Navy CMS VENOM DARTS

    Hoping someone here maybe able to locate a diagram or photo of a US NAVY CMS VENOM DART submunition cutaway. To the best of my knowledge, there are two different types of CMS VENOM Darts, a HE version and a DETA Chemical version which has a fluid that nullifies the explosive chemicals in underwater and buried shoreline mines. They become inert after a bit of time if they don't impact a mine. I am hoping to find a cutaway view of the DETA version.

    Thanks Big Time,


    Jason

    I got some documents from a gent actually selling 3 darts, they where inert DETA versions. I will see if I still have the docs.

    Thanks, Bud!

    I have seen a few documents on them as well as the HE type but never a cutaway or internal diagram of the DETA type.

    Attaching a link to the IAA forum thread I started on these CMS Darts a ways back if anyone is interested in better pics. Still hoping to find a photo or diagram of the DETA variant to see its internal designs. :-)
