Abstract : Tests were conducted to determine the suitability of Fuze, MTSQ, T197E2, for field artillery use. The test fuze is a dual-purpose type fuze, mechanical-time and superquick, designed for use with all standard field artillery shells. It is set clockwise from 2 to 100 sec with a vernier to obtain 0.1-sec settings. Weight and contour of the test fuze was designed to be identical to standard MTSQ and PD fuzes. It is concluded that the T197E2 fuze is suitable for fieldARTILLERY USE IN TEMPERATE CLIMATES; HOWEVER, THE PRECISION AND RELIABILITY OF THE FUZE SHOULD BE IMPROVED FOR FIRING WITH MAX CHARGE IN THE 175-MM GUN.
