The 3AP Mod 2 fuze was designed to increase the capability of target interception to defeat aircrafts, missiles and small boats by an advanced RF sensor and by different settable proximity modes. The delayed impact mode allows the fuze to penetrate boat or bunker.

 

The 3AP Mod 2 fuze is an electronic multifunction fuze designed to be used with 76mm L62 ammunition. It can perform in different modes: proximity, time, air burst, point detonation, point detonation delayed and self destruction. The fuze is fully programmable using a gun-mounted electronic setter, and can beset automatically at firing or manually. The fuze is fully compliant with STANAG 4187. The point detonation delayed function activates the fuze 3msec after the impact. The fuze has been qualified in accordance with STANAG 4157.
