Description

The Multi-Option Artillery Fuze (MOFA) is used on fragmentation (HE loaded) and burster type 105mm cartridges, and 155mm projectiles.

The fuze has four functional modes: variable time (VT), time (TIME), point detonating (PD), and delay (DLY). MOFA contains an electronic timing system that may be set to function from 0.5 to 199.9 seconds in increments of tenths of a second. The fuze will be automatically remote set prior to launch via an inductive communication link (i.e., the M1155 portable inductive fuze setter, TM 9-1290-210-12&P). The mission data transferred from the setter to the fuze is confirmed by the M1155 fuze setter.
