Figure 6-3.–Common projectile types. Large HC projectiles (fig. 6-3, view D) are provided with  an  auxiliary  booster  to  supplement  the  booster charge in the nose of the main charge. With threads in both the nose and base, HC projectiles may receive a variety of fuzes or plugs to accomplish different tactical purposes. An adapter ring (or rings) is provided on the nose end of most HC projectiles to allow installation of point detonating fuses (PDFs) or nose plug and auxiliary detonating  fuses  (ADFs)  with  different  size  threads.  An adapter is removed for larger fuzes. HC projectiles are normally shipped with a PDF installed in the nose. The base fuzes that are shipped installed in the projectile may not  be  removed  except  at  an  ammunition  depot. ILLUMINATING (ILLUM).—  Illuminating projectiles (fig. 6-3, view E) are made with thin walls.

The time fuze serves to ignite the expelling charge. Explosion of the 6-5
