Abstract (en)

The detonator for a shell having an explosive charge (6) inside a case (2) comprises a fuse (1) to initiate a detonation relay (4), with a plate (11) between the relay and charge. The plate, designed to be projected by the relay against the charge to detonate it, is fixed to a supporting ring (10) with a threaded surface (10a) for connecting to the shell case.
