Prior to 1967 the “front” sector of an Earth-Covered Magazines (ECM) was measured from the center of the headwall. Magazines were constructed based on this assumption.
Now, the front exposure arc originates inside the magazine, intersecting at the Headwall & sidewall (the arc is widened). Now the canted magazines have a Side to Front exposure by a thin margin.
This increases the inter-magazine (IMD) distance required, increases the required K factor, thus requiring drastically reduced storage limits in some cases.
What are your thoughts?
Is there a regualtion that states the Approver on DA Form 1687 can not receive ammunition from the ASP?
All ammo operations require an SOP, the NEW must be listed in the SOP. Is it stated anywhere that the Bay NEW limits must match the NEW on the SOP?
Is there a regulation that states aircrafts cannot fly over ammunition?
