The AOTM M3 Training Kit offers a detailed and practical learning tool for Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) professionals, focusing on the sophisticated mechanics of point-detonating fuzes with ball bearings mechanisms. This kit, part of the comprehensive Standard Ordnance Training Set (SOTS), is designed to enhance the technical understanding and operational skills of EOD technicians in handling advanced ordnance fuzes.


  • Complex Fuze Replica: The M3 kit features an intricate replica of the M3 point-detonating fuze, which includes a unique mechanism involving setback sleeves, ball bearings, and a slider system. This design is critical for demonstrating how the fuze arms move setback sleeves, which release ball bearings into side recesses, thereby freeing the firing pin upon impact.
  • Interactive Educational Tools: Included with the kit are detailed instructional slides and materials that describe how the fuze arms and detonates. These resources help explain the complex interactions of mechanical components under real-world conditions, providing a clear understanding of the processes involved.
  • Durable and Precise Construction: Built to endure the physical demands of rigorous training environments, the M3 replicas are made from high-quality materials that ensure both durability and precision, allowing for repeated use without degradation.
  • Hands-On Learning Experience: The kit promotes an active learning environment, encouraging trainees to engage with the fuze mechanism physically. This hands-on approach is invaluable for mastering the safe handling and operation of similar live ordnance.


The M3 Training Kit is essential for:

  • Advanced military and law enforcement EOD training programs that require a deep understanding of complex fuze mechanisms.
  • Technical training courses at educational institutions focusing on military engineering or ordnance disposal.
  • Private security firms providing advanced bomb disposal training.

Real Ordnance Training Applications:

The training provided by the M3 kit is applicable to handling real ordnance items equipped with similar fuzing mechanisms, such as:

This specialized training kit ensures that EOD technicians are well-prepared to tackle the challenges associated with modern ordnance disposal, enhancing safety and operational effectiveness in the field.
