US Burster, M10

 

1789-142

Description

Burster M10 is an explosive-filled tube that has a threaded plastic or steel round plug at one end. The other end is closed by a threaded plug assembly consisting of a gilding-metal cup and a steel cup holder with a hexagonal or round shoulder for positioning the burster. The cup, which is thin enough to be ruptured by the fuze detonator, is fitted into a hole in the cup holder and contains a small charge of tetryl. This burster is used in the 115-lb Chemical Bomb M70.
