By adding one of several fuzes and tails to a W28 warhead, a B28FI ("Fuzed Internal") bomb was created. Each warhead in the inventory thus had many variants, each with a specific strategic or tactical use. This particular tail section was used for our frequent practice removing, inspecting, and reinstalling the retardation parachute (a B52, even a full speed, needs much time to travel the distance necessary to be escape from this bomb's blast radius.)
