centrifuge by application of 40.0 gravities "g's" maximum for a minimum of
three (3) seconds which simulates a rocket launching. Radiographic inspec-
t i o n s h a l l b e u t i l i z e d t o v e r i f y t h a t e a c h unit is armed and has no defec-

functioned by dropping a fifty (50) to fifty-one (51) pound weight from a
height of 5.0 feet to 5.5 feet onto the nose of the fuze in the "Superquick"
mode. The weight shall be dropped only once. High order detonation shall
