VP-9M FUZE

The fuze is a piezoelectric, nose-base type with percussion-instantaneous action, distant arming and a self-destruction mechanism. It is intended for use on PG-9 anti-tank grenades for the SPG-9M heavy anti-tank grenade launcher and 2A28 gun, mounted on the BMP-1. It serves to detonate the warhead on impact with the target. The fuze is composed of two parts – nose part (piezoelectric generator) and base part – safety and detonating mechanism.
