What term applies when the functioning time of a fuze is 0.0003 seconds or less?
The functioning delay of an electrical fuze is initiated by what means?
What term applies when the functioning time of a fuze is 0.0003 to 0.0005 seconds?
A fuze that does NOT have the elements of its firing train in the proper position for firing until the fuze is fully armed is known as what type of fuze?
A detonator-safe fuze
The distance along the trajectory that a bomb travels from the releasing aircraft in an unarmed condition is known by what abbreviation?
In reference to their primary operating principles, fuzes are normally divided into what two general classes?
Mechanical and electrical
To help make carrier operations safe, a bomb that is accientally released duing an aircrafts landing or takeoff will NOT normally have sufficient air travel, velocity, or time to fully arm the fuze because of waht fuze feature?
Delay Arming
The two observation windows of an M904 series fuze are used for what purpose?
To determine the safe/armed condition?
You can determine if a fuze is safe or armed by what means?
By external evidence of arming
