The SIL M5 fuze is a PD Delay impact fuze with SD function designed for use with 40mm L70 HE projectiles. With a post impact delay function of a few milli seconds the fuze has the capability to penetrate soft target before detonating. It is a copy of the BPDM5 fuze produced in millions of items with some explosive changed in consequence of obsolescence.

 

SIL M5 fuze is a pyrotechnical fuze with PD DLY and Self-destruction functions (after 7s of flight). The delay PD function activates the fuze 1.5ms after the impact. The fuze is waterproof, and fully compliant with the STANAG 4187.
