    No.89 fuze

    here's something you don't see very often, a No.89 time & percussion fuze. The only 3 banked time fuze used by the British and designed for long range shooting at balloons by 4.7 inch & 60pdr guns. Due to their limited elevation, these guns could not be used in the direct anti aircraft role but could be used at long range on a stationary airborne target.
