Just like its generation fuzes, it included the graze action arming system with two components (mobile primer pellet and percussion system safety by stem and gunpowder pellet), and the pecussion system (axial mobile graze pellet and static percussin pin, safety spring and safety stem blocking) that was the German state of the art in 1914.
