German 88mm Zt.Z S/30 Fg1 Timed AA Fuse

The fuze (weight 15 oz. 12 dr.) is used in 8.8 cm and 10.5 cm H.E. A.A. shell and resembles the Zt.Z. S/30 in external appearance but differs in the mechanism in which the motive power is derived from centrifugal force instead of from a clock spring. The type is identified by the stamping “Zt.Z. S/30 Fg1” around the side of the body above the flange. The fuze is igniferous and has a maximum time of running of 30 seconds. The mechanism governing the setting is designed to prevent the fuze from functioning at settings shorter than approximately 1 second.
