V-5K is a mechanical, nose, point-detonating fuze with super quick action. The fuze features distant arming.
The fuze V-5K completes 57 mm High Explosive and Hollow Charge unguided rockets S-5K, S-5KO, S-5KOV and S-5MO, launched from UB-16 and UB-32 aircraft rocket pods.
The fuze is safe in storage, handling and operation and ensures the safe and reliable function of the ammunition in all weather conditions.
The fuze is armed after burning of propellant by the set back forces.
Upon impact the fuze provides super quick action.
The fuze functions under impact and inertia forces. The inertia device ensures action not only upon impact on both solid and marshy ground.
