The M234 electronic Self-Destruct fuze incorporates two autonomous fuze functioning systems. The first consists of an improved primary mode mechanical fuze. An integral electronic timer controls initiation of the secondary self-destruct feature. If the primary fuze fails to function because of ground impact attitude or terrain irregularities, the M234 electronic backup timer causes either the initiation of the explosive charge or sterilization of the fuze.
