VMG-K is a mechanical, nose, point-detonating fuze with super-quick action. The fuze features distant arming and self destruction.
Fuze VMG-K completes the following ammunition:
· 40 mm HE grenade VOG-25 for GP-25 grenade launcher mounted under AK-47 and AK-74 assault rifles
· 40 mm HE grenade AR-406 for M203 grenade launcher mounted under M-16 assault rifle
The fuze is safe in storage, handling and operation and ensures the safe and reliable function of the ammunition in all weather conditions.
Before firing the Safety and Arm device prevents the detonator from positioning into the fire train. Even in case of unintentional ignition of the primer, no transfer of the firing pulse to the fire train can occur.
The fuze ensures distant arming within 10 to 40 m from muzzle. At firing the set-back and rotational forces arm the fuze, fixing the elements of the fire train in one line.
Upon impact the fuze provides SQ action. The fuze functions upon impact on solid ground, marshy ground and snow.
In case of no impact the grenade is self-destruct within 14 to 19 s.
