|Type 89 Small Time Fuze.
This fuze is found on the Type 95 50mm Smoke Round ("Knee Mortar") and the Type 95 70mm Illumination projectile for the Type 92 Infantry Gun (Howitzer).
There is a U.S. reference to this fuze also used on an illumination round for the Type 11 70mm Infantry Mortar, but I can't find any info on that.
The safety wire holding the striker is removed before firing.
See my page about the Type 89 Large Time Fuze for more functional detail and links.

If the owner of the photo of the round wants credit, please let me know. I can't recall how it ended up in my data archive
