Figure Pointinitiating basedetonating fuze

The bracket-arming type has a time ring; the adjustable-delay-arming type has a graduated time scale which must be set for the predicted time to target. When fired, the proximity element of the fuze becomes armed a short time before reaching target and functions on proximity approach. If the fuze does not come within the influence range of a suitable target, the fuze will cause self-destruction of the projectile soon after the set time. e fuze also contains an impact element. This will function the projectile if impact with a resistant object occurs at any time after arming of the impact element, but before arming and functioning of the fuze by the proximity element.
