They should’ve placed a shell in the fuze setters -if only a dummy- and put a sign explaning the process, not many realize today that the fuze was ‘programmed’ before the shot.

Starting maybe with showing a round with a time fuze on instead an impact fuze like the one they nailed onto the gun.

Like this one.-:)

Yes, but the initial design, the Zt.Z. S/30, was the one by Thiel in Ruhla (designed by Paul Liebergeld). This model was the major type used (and the dsign is still in use today by some armies - Russia for example).
The centrifugally driven type Zt.Z. S/30 Fg. (your’s here) by Junghans was used less because it got adopted much later.

Nice fatcory display you have there.

Nice fuse!

HUNGARIAN 88 fuze


#9

To my limited knowledge the Hungarians had no 88mm gun. They used this 32M fuze on their 80mm 29M AA gun which was a Bofors design.

Here it is:
