1. Designation

2. Construction and operation

82 mm Illuminating Mortar Bomb ILL 82 is a ready-to-use Mortar bomb, completely assembled with pyrotechnic time-and-super quick fuze and charged with a set of propellant charges (ignition cartridge plus set of increment charges).
The main parts of the bombshell are: fairing, body and 10-vane fin assembly, all made of aluminum alloys.
The payload of the bomb is a movable illuminating system consisting of parachute system and illuminating flare. The flare consists of a steel cup and illuminating pyrotechnical composition.
In a defined point of the trajectory, the fuze through the black powder pellet gives an impulse for the ignition of the flare and for the ejection of the illuminating system over the target.
After the ejection, flare descent is smooth and slow due to the parachute system, and by its spiral motion provides maximum illuminating effect during the whole time of flare burning.
