Abstract:

This fourth edition is published to reflect changes in the status of cartridges since the last edition 1967, to include new cartridges accepted for Navy service use in the interim, to expand the information published on each cartridge, and to include information on proprietary cartridges accepted for Navy use. Cartridges are treated in numerical sequence by MARK-MOD and Source Control Drawing Number assignments, and information on percussion primers and electric igniters widely used in Navy cartridges is included. The information on each cartridge is presented by means of a quarter-section isometric drawing showing the relations between the components in the cartridge, an outline drawing showing the nominal envelope dimensions of the cartridge, a wiring schematic for electrically fired cartridges, and a tabulation of applicable information on the cartridge.
