A few months ago I came across a photo of what appeared to be a fairly modern looking Russian bomb fuze with this odd “Ball On A String” part. I did not think much of it at the time until I saw this picture of another Russian fuze with the same apparatus. Does anyone know anything about its function/purpose? Fuzes are incredibly interesting, some seem to be extremely high tech and beyond complicated. Does anyone have any info on the functioning of modern Russian fuzes?
I wonder if it has something to do with electronically “Setting” the fuze? Just a novice guess.
