Artillery fuze


#1

I have a large fuze marked 'Mech. time fuze Mk 50 Mod 2.'Bronze with aluminum tip.It fits my 155mm projectiles but the major dia. is about 2 7/8 which is too large for the projectile body. What is this for?? Thanks

Majorbeau,

This shows several Navy uses for the Mk 50 fuze. Adapters may have been used in some instances.
