German mechanical time fuze Zt. Z, S/30 (drawings)

If you want higher resolution scans, just drop me a line.


An old post, how does it work upon firing and does it need to be wound up.

Topfmine, the mechanizm is wound up during assembly in the factory.

There is a variant of the fuze designated “Fg.” (Fliehgewicht) wich is not wound up but creates the needed movement from the spin of the projectile and is sowith independent from a wound up spring (which can go weak during storage or simply break).
