b. Incendiary Burster. An incendiary burster (fig. 7-14) is used, primarily, with field-improvised incendiary munitions. When immersed in a container (5-gallon can, used shell case, 55-gallon drum) filled with thickened fuel, the burster will rupture the container and scatter flaming fuel over a large area. The burster can be fired either electrically or mechanically: by fuze, blasting cap, detonating cord or any standard boobytrap firing device.
