Product Description

The first of a postwar series of modular antisubmarine mines, Mk 52 was the 1000-lb-class air-laid weapon. The World War II air-laid mines (such as Mks 25 and 36) used components plugged into the side of the mine; the Mk 50 series used an instrument rack inserted at one end of the mine to carry the firing mechanism, clock mechanism, sterilizer, and associated batteries. The tail cover had 3 openings for target-detecting devices in contact with the sea, and there was a well for the hydrostatic arming device. When it appeared, Mk 52 offered more flexibility in fewer different components in one package than ever before. The mine could be dropped either in cylindrical form with box fins (for internal carriage) or in streamlined form with a round nose and a pointed tail (with pop-out fins). It used new influence field detectors and 3 types of associated firing mechanisms: pressure, acoustic, magnetic. Versions: Mod 0 (pressure), Mod 1 (acoustic, 1130 lb), Mod 2 (magnetic, 1170 lb), Mod 3 (pressure-magnetic, 1190 lb), Mod 4 (pressure-acoustic), Mod 5 (magnetic-acoustic, 1200 lb), and Mod 6 (pressure-acoustic-magnetic, 1235 lb). Mod 7 (magnetic) and Mod 8 (pressure-magnetic) were abortive. In each case, dimensions were 18.8 x 70.2 in, and the charge was 625 lb of HBX-1. Mk 52 could deal with a submarine moving at only 3 kt and could be adjusted in sensitivity. It had a 30-count ship counter and a 1-hr to 90-day delay arming mechanism. It could be used in place of a standard unstreamlined 1000-lb AN-series GP bomb.
