Abstract : The MT, T252 fuze is a 45-second mechanical time fuze designed to initiate the M29 percussion primer which in turn ignites the explosive train of the T214 illuminating shell. The fuze provides safety, arming, timing and firing systems to permit firing at selective time settings. Two sources were explored to provide a self-contained light source for night setting.
