A selectable fuze consisting of an electronic circuitry, a power source (for example a reserve battery or a turbo generator), an impact mechanism and a dual safety arming mechanism. It is designed to function at an optimal distance from the target, determined by the mode selected. (Examples of mode include airburst, near surface burst, impact, delay after impact, and set time). The operational mode is selected at time of launching for the desired type of action. The fuze may also have a default autonomous mode as a backup in case no operational mode is selected.
