The third requirement was the destruction of earth and timber bunkers, something requiring impact fuse
as well as high firing accuracy, the round needing to detonate inside the sand bags.
It carried either a high explosive or black powder burst charge initiated by an impact fuse
in the nose, similar to a large rifle primer, investigators said.
The impact fuse
on these grenades is sensitive enough to work on snow, bog, and water surfaces.
The weapon features a two-stage warhead, the first being a hollow charge with a 106 mm diameter (the warhead calibre being 110 mm) with a piezoelectric impact fuse
to ensure penetration.
The second weapon was the V--2, a liquid-fueled ballistic missile with a 2,000 pound high-explosive warhead and impact fuses
The shells provided were fused with 119 impact fuses
, and the deep cavity had been filled with a cloth bag of high explosive material.
With most types of circuit protection devices comprising mature, virtually saturated markets, expected cyclical moderation in capital spending and OEM product sales will directly impact fuses
and circuit breakers demand.
