This is a bar-type, variable time (VT) fuze with a nominal MinSAT of 3,600 feet. Like the M166E1 it has the transverse bars (dipoles) strengthened so that they can be used to screw the fuze into the bomb without a wrench. It also has a clearly labeled, knurled thumbscrew for adjusting the sensitivity of the fuze.
