4. REPACKAGING. Repackage in the same (or similar, if necessary) packaging material. Make sure all packaging material is clean, dry, and serviceable prior to (re)use, and that markings are both correct and consonant throughout.
a. Carefully reassemble propellant increment cover to the fin and boom assembly.
until it rests on the integral packing stop.
e. Position fiber spacer(s) between the ignition
cartridge and the container cap.
f. Assemble the cap to the container.
g. Seal fiber container with at least 1-1/4 wraps of tape clockwise around the joint of the cap and the body of the container. Make a tab out of the last inch of the tape.
h. Place fiber containers into the PA70 metal box, cap end down (i.e., nose end UP).
antipilferage seal to the closing hasp.
j. Place two PA70 cans inside a wirebound box with hasp ends pointing in opposite directions.
k. Place fiberboard spacers in between the PA70 cans to assure a tight pack.
l. Install ends so that the DODIC on each end reads up. Add fiberboard spacer(s) to the ends as needed to create a tight pack.
m. Carefully close up the wirebound box around the ends and over the PA70 cans. Secure closure loops, and apply antipilferage seal through at least one loop.
h. (O) Assure the cap is securely taped to the fiber container prior to this step.
m. (O) Use of banding in lieu of a seal is acceptable where closure loops have been damaged to the point of being unusable. Take care not to destroy the box!
D. SPECIAL TOOLS AND EQUIPMENT No “special tools or equipment” are required in order to conduct the actual inspection of 60mm M722-series cartridges. HOWEVER, a water-filled barrel, or other container large enough to totally submerge the inspected item, will be on hand during the inspection The lip of the container will be low enough to minimize lifting needed to get the round into the water.
E. SUPPLEMENTAL HAZARD ANALYSIS: MISSION: To inspect Cartridge, 60mm Smoke, WP, M722.
NOTE: Ammunition is designed to be safe to ship, store, and handle. Principle hazards will be those of external forces (e.g., fire or unauthorized handling/disassembly) acting upon the munitions. 1. Handle WP-filled Possible ex- Med (M) Water sufficient to Low (L)
