    Length: 218-MM
    Exposed: 96-MM


    Any ideas?

    I am afraid that the fuze is not the one used for this 20kg bomb.
    That should be the ICE-JV-171-7 (unfortunately the search function does not show any results when I type it in, so I can´t tell what thread it is from)

    The last picture shows 3 different types of 20kg bombs, the fuzes look more like the one in question, but again not the same.
    I wish I could help You more, but these pics are nearly all the data on pre wer fuzes I have.

    I knew some of these were going to be tough to ID.

    I think that the fuze shown by Joe is for the 12 kg HE bomb made by the Skoda factory.

    Is the 12 kg Skoda HE bomb also dropped by a cluster bomb? And who knows the weight of the filling of the 12 kg bomb?

    10kg not 12kg - the Czech arsenal included a 10 kg bomb - the 10 kg OTLP vz.34 ("Ostra Trhavá Letecká Puma vzor 1934, 10kg, Skoda") equipped with an instant fuze

    Hi Mr. jvollenberg
    Are you still interested in what kind of fuse is?

    BTW this photograph from 1948 shows a Skoda bomb in the Armatorium in Delft in the Netherlands (10 kg bomb probably in accordance to the size of the other bombs in the display - I made an enlargement of this one - and the fact that the reinforcing tail band is plain and not ridged)
    Object 2155_005033 Leger Film- en Fotodienst (LFFD) 1948 :
    Skoda bomb in the Armamentarium in Delft - Object 2155_005033 Leger Film- en Fotodienst (LFFD) 1.jpg
    Would be interesting to know how it arrived there. Luftwaffe re-use in 1940 ? (they had a shortage of bombs and there are for instance mentions of Ju87 using captured Polish bombs with strap suspension during the campaign in France though I have never seen photo evidence )

    Hi Dreamk ,

    For export to Germany, reductions of fuse to the Czechoslovak bombs for a German fuse were later e-fuse (66). Stocks of manufactured bombs and fuse were taken to Germany shortly after the surrender of the army.
    Object 2155_005033 Leger Film- en Fotodienst (LFFD) 1948 >> By the way, on that hanging eye is a ,, unlocking ,,
    The bombs were produced throughout the war and shortly after the war (for export ).

    Fuse for 50-150 kg fragmentation air bombs of construction in 1923.
    One of three modifications for bombs from 50 kg, not counting for piercing bombs.
