Abstract : The patent relates to an explosive-train, arming-rotor type fuze mounted flush with the skin of a weapon wherein the arming rotor is doubly out-of-line in the safe position, and where both linear translation and angular rotation is required to align the explosive train in the armed position. A visual and tactile indicator is provided, the fuze being 'safe' when it remains flush, and being able to become 'armed' when the fuze protrudes from the skin of the weapon.
