N(Nagy-big)- 350kg

The adjustable shear-ring in the fuze is set in the desired setting.
When the pressureplate initiates the fuze, the striker in the fuze hits the percussion cap and sets off the detonator.
When set on "pull function", the shear-ring is not in the fuze.
After pulling out the release pin through tripwire, the striker spring drives the striker in the percussion cap.

The photo below shows a dug relic of the training version of the 36M TAK, missing the pressure-plate.
