Radio proximity fuse and Tiny Tim rocket (WNY)

Vlad, was there some info on that Rocket?

This is a Tiny Tim rocket It is a plane launched HE rocket designed specifically for attacks on Japanese reverse slope military fortifications on Okinawa. The regular artillery had problems hitting the “other” side of a mountain.

Vlad, thanks!

That VT fuze looks to be a MK 32, one of the early ones. It, and others like it, are what made the 3’’/50 Rapid Fire guns effective. Without it, the old 3" (and 5") AA guns were nothing more than “spray and pray” ammunition eaters.
