Fuze Safety
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.

Distant arming
The fuze is distant armed at distance not less than 20 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 delayed action within 0.002 to 0.004 s.

In case of no impact the round is self-destruct within 13 to 17 s.
