    REPLACE THIS TEXT WITH YOUR PHOTO COMMENTS. IF YOU WANT TO REQUEST A COPY OF THIS PHOTO, FILL OUT FORM BELOW.The CBU-55 Fuel Air Explosive Weapon contained no propane. It had three submunitions containing Ethylene Oxide (I think) which were sequentially pulled out of the dispenser by parachutes after the rear plate was blown off after a signal from the proximity fuze on the dispenser. Each submunition deployed an extendable probe with an impact sensor. When the sensor hit the ground two delay ignitors were disperesed and a burster tube in the center of the submunition went off spreading the ethylene oxide into an aerosol cloud. When the delay (120 msec) ignitors went off the cloud detonated. The FAE was a pure blast weapon. How do I know all teh above?? I worked on Fuel Air Explosives for the Air Force in 1969-73. -Submitted by: Alan E. Haberbusch Col (Ret) USAF [haberpsu64@cox.net] 2006-11-11
