HomeFUZES and IGNITERSUSSR

The MUV is the fuze most commonly used in Soviet mines.
It can be activated by pull on a loop-end striker retaining pin, as used in the
POMZ antipersonnel mines; or by pressure on a winged pin, as used in the PMD series of antipersonnel mines.
This fuze consists of a tubular case which houses a spring loaded striker.
The
MD-2 is the standard detonator for this fuze.
A force of two pounds or more removes the striker retaining pin from the striker.
The spring drives the striker against the percussion cap, which starts the firing chain.

Length: 56mm , diameter: 13mm.
Functioning force: 900gram.
Fuzes can be found made of metal, plastic or ebonite.
