A firebomb is a thin-skinned container of fuel gel designed for use against dug-in troops, supply installations, wooden structures, and land convoys. Firebombs rupture upon impact and spread burning fuel gel on surrounding objects. One or more ignite rs and fuzes are used to ignite the fuel gel mixture upon impact. Firebombs are used primarily for low level attacks. The Mk 77 Mod 5 firebomb holds approximately 75 gallons of fuel gel mixture and weighs approximately 500 pounds when filled. The container is cigar-shaped, non-stabilized (will tumble end over end when released from the aircraft), lightweight, and is made of aluminum. It has a 14-inch suspension between the lugs and provides two filler holes, which are 31 degrees down from the t op of the container. The filler holes are covered by filler caps, which are secured by retainer rings. The filler caps prevent foreign objects from getting inside the container during shipping and storage, and provide a sealed closure after the container i s filled with fuel gel before fuzing. The filler holes also provide for the installation of the primary fuses. During fuzing procedures, the filler caps are removed and replaced by igniters, which seals the closure. The production of this item basically requires welding of the aluminum bomb sections in a specific shape, casting filler caps, and a 10 PSI air pressure test for leaks. Fuel gelling mixture beads and MS3314 Suspension Lugs will be government furnished mat erial. Top level drawings are available upon request. Interested parties should send a written response to Mary C. Hill as above, email: hillm@osc.army.mil, phone 309-782-6654.
