G: "After 20 years of service I do know a thing or two about fuses. Never heard of one with that designation." Gee, it took me about five minutes to google up the fact that the Mk 82 uses a M904 mechanical fuse. And amongst the many components that make up the M904 fuse there is one part that is of great interest to anyone who has to defuse the damn thing: the "M273 Fuse Cable". The Guardian spoke to someone who knew the difference between an "M904 fuse with an M273 fuse cable" and an "M904 with a M271 fuse cable". Gee, can I suggest that your long years of hefting Big Things That Go Bang onto the wings of Sleek Things That Go Fast may not make you an expert on those What Little Things Have To Be Removed To Stop Those Big Things From Going BAAAAAAAAANG!!!!! Just a thought, ya' know.....
