Bomb Nose Fuze Fun Facts

Principle of Operation: During bomb’s release from the aircraft, the propeller (vane) rotates, allowing an impeller to spin. After a certain number of revolutions, the fuse becomes armed, allowing it to function. When the bomb impacts the target, the firing pin punches the detonator causing it to detonate, activating the booster charge, which causes the main charge to function. These bombs are equipped with nose and tail fuses. The common nose fuse is the AN-M103 and the tail fuse is the AN-M101A2.
