Fuze Safety

Before firing the Safety and Arm device prevents the detonator from positioning into the fire train. Even in case of unintentional ignition of the primer, no transfer of the firing pulse to the fire train can occur.



Distant arming

The fuze ensures distant arming within 10 to 40 m from muzzle. At firing the set-back and rotational forces arm the fuze, fixing the elements of the fire train in one line.



Fuze Action

Upon impact  the fuze provides SQ action. The fuze functions upon impact on solid ground, marshy ground and snow.



Self Destruction

In case of no impact the grenade is self-destruct within 14 to 19 s.
