Description:
Simulator. The simulator consists of an inner container and an outer container, both of black plastic. The inner container, containing the pyrotechnic charge, is closed at one end and internally threaded at the base to receive the adapter holder. The outer container seats upon the shoulder of the inner container at the base and is internally threaded to accept a filling plug at the other end. A commercial squib S93 is shipped with each round. Preparation for tiring includes installation of the squib into the adapter holder, and pouring 70 cubic centimeters of gasoline through the filler hole into the space between the inner and outer containers. Firing Tube. A locally fabricated firing tube is required to discharge the simulator. The steel tube is 10 inches long, 3 inches outer diameter, 2-9/16 inner diameter. A steel plate 3 inches in diameter by 3/4 inch thick is welded to bottom of tube.
Use:
To effect battle conditions in artillery maneuvers and as a decoy in forward combat areas. Its flash closely resembles those of the 90mm Gun M2 series and the 155mm Howitzer M1 series (particularly with Charge 5).
Functioning:
The simulator is electrically activated and discharged in a locally fabricated steel firing tube. A minimum current of 1/2 ampere is required for actuation of the squib and the current source may be a battery or a blasting machine. The electric squib ignites the pyrotechnic charge and the gasoline. The simulator flash lasts slightly longer than that of the actual weapon. Its report is loud, but not comparable to the actual weapon report.
