REVEIW NUMBER 2 ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS Q1. THROUGH Q7.
The M904 is a detonator-safe, mechanical impact nose fuze.
The M904 series fuze is used with Mk 80 (series) bombs.
The M904 fuze has nine arming delays, which you can set for 2 to 18 seconds in
2-second increments; there are any combination of six functioning delays from
instantaneous to 250 milliseconds.
It is important for the M904 to be thermally protected because it increases the
"cook-off" time of bombs subjected to intense heat or flame.
There are three conditions of the M904 fuzesafe, partially armed, and fully
armed. You can check for these conditions by looking in the two observation
windows in the fuze body.
If you can't tell if a fuze is safe, you should notify explosive ordnance disposal
The M904 arms and functions by rotation of arming vanes and alignment of
