PART DROPPED OBJECTIVES TO learn identification, and the disposal procedures INTRODUCTION This text will provide a retiew of the older type bombs and a more detailed s tidy of the newer type bombs being used in SEA. Most EOD technicians do not get involved in the build up of munitions and are not completely familiar with the installation, or removal of the bomb fins, or tie set screws that physically lock items in place. This text will also provide a review of the operation of arming lanyards and asso. ciated components for bombs eqtipped with internal conduits. The review will be helpful to those who have not been working with conventional weapons the last few years. This text will be used in conjwction with classroom discussion. operation, explosive fillers, for dropped munitions. hazards, reiated equipment, ONE MUNITIONS

method:

on suspension

the lanyard removes tli-e safety clip and releases a At the expiration cocked striker to ignite a positive 2 second safe separation delay. Two sets of the preset delay, the ejection charge separates the parachute and candle. Ui ca”bies are attached to tie paracnuce shroud lines, one of which is =iiorter than tie a pulling. fo~ce on other. As. the parachute is deployed, the. sho=t-set of cables exerts the firing pin assembly, cocking and releasing the firing pin which ignites the firing train and candle. As the candle approaches burnout, the resultant heat functions an explosive bolt releasing 10 shroud lines, collapsing the parachute. 1-86.

Function: At release, the arming wire is extracted allowing vane rotation, causing the arming screw to unthread, lifting the vane cup clear of the safety discs and allowing the detonator slider to position itself under one of the detonator leads. Impact causes detonation. The delay firing pin always strikes the delay primer, igniting the delay column which detonates the booster regardless of fuze setting..

~g. Function: Vane rotation is transmitted through the flexible shaft to the input 13drive aasembly and reduction gear train which drive the plunger release screw. Rotation of the plunger release screw causes the screw to be withdrawn from the As the plmger release screw rotates, the rotor release screw, plunger assembly. which is keyed to the plunger release screw, withdraws from the rotary assembly cavity and frees the rotor to move to the aligned position. Upon impact, the plunger assembly moves forward, When the annular groove in the plunger aligns with the steel ball that restrains the firing pin, the ball is forced into the plunger groove and frees the firing pin. ..”---.TAIL, Ci-IEhLiCAL .LOIN~ DE LA-i, BOOBY TRAPPED Vane Armed (reference Ai{Ti--:,-ITHE7~A’/; AL,

MINE 2-42)

FUZE

Identification: The FMU 30/B consists of a heavy mactine steel forging, called the nose, and a cylindrical steel container which encloses the rear section of the fuze. The nose is hexagonal in shape and contains target sensors in three of the hexagonaL sides. Two delj.very mode setting switches are located in the nose, the target selector switch and the sensitivity switch. A cavity at the rear end of the cylindrical container is for installation of the booster. A hole at the rear center’ of .the fuze contains the . safing plug. 2-73. General Information: The fuze contains a safe/arm rotor. that holds the electronic detonator in an out-of-line position until mechanical arming. takes place. An arm/safe (A/S) rod pas ses through the rotor and holds it in the unarmed position until an ~al After the. A/S rod is released,. th~-ro~orimpact of sufficient magnitude is experienced. At a given time after release of the A/S “rodj two electrically’’fitiated is free to turn. bellow motors drive the rotor into the armed position. Electric al contacts on the rotor assembly disconnect the dud circuits and connect the fire circuits when the rotor is driven to the in-line position. Reference AFTO 11 A7-11 -7, dated 21 April 1969.

a. Detonator. b. Booster c. 2-77. Booster. At release, the lanyard pull unlocks three release pins to permit operalead-in.

Function:

tion of the retardation sensor, timer, and slider. The retardation sensor functions when the snakeye fins are deployed, permitting the arming timer to run. At the end of the arming time (. 75 to 3.5 seconds), the slider release shaft permits movement of the spring-loaded slider; thereby lining up the fuze explosively. Upon impact, the springloaded striker impinges the detonator and causes the bomb to detonate. If, however, the bomb should impact prior to completion of th-e arming. cycle, the slider would be prevented from moving to the armed position. PROXIMITY 2-78.
