~ WW1 German Dopp Z92 K15 Fuze ~
The model 1892 Dopp Z92 has been developed as an evolution of the Dopp Z 91 fuze and has been designed to serve numerous purposes. Different variants of it can be found today.
The Z92 K15, a double effect 45 mm time and percussion fuze, has been designed for ranges between 1 and 26 hectometers.
It is graduated from 1 to 26 seconds and dedicated to different 15cm guns.
The fuse is using the classical graze action arming system secured by a two rods safety pin and based on a massive gunpowder pellet and a percussion pin protected by a tulip spring.
The major evolution compared to the Dopp Z 91 was given by the existence of two time rings instead of one, the lower one only being graduated.
The top of the fuze is stamped ‘Dopp Z92 K.15 E7G 16’.
