ANSWERS TO REVIEW
1. 70.67, because 212 divided by 3 = 70.67.
2. 70.67; there will be 70.67 tons stored in each section.
3. 50 tons.
5. 5, because 50 (gross tons per FSU) divided by 10 (gross tons per stack) = 5. You will have to limit
all FSUs to 5 stacks.
e. Now that you know how to establish the "quantity" at a storage site, you will learn how to
establish the "distance." Some "distances" you must establish are:
(1) Q-D between stacks of ammunition.
(2) Q-D between FSUs.
(3) Q-D between FSCs.
(4) Q-D between ammunition and inhabited buildings.
You also use Table 4-4 of TM 9-1300-206 to find the "distance" you must have. You will be
dealing with unbarricaded or barricaded distances. Look at Figure 9. If you had stacks
containing 8 tons of category B munitions, they would have to be separated by at least 40 feet.
For example: If you had unbarricaded stacks containing 4 tons of Category E munitions, how far would
they have to be separated? See Table 4-4, Figure 9. See category E, unbarricaded stacks. You will see
the distance must be 75 feet.
If you had 280 tons in barricaded FSUs of Category C munitions, how far would they have to be
separated? Look under Category C, unbarricaded FSUs. You will see the FSUs must be separated by
What is the minimum distance between propelling charges and any other stack of ammunition? Note 2
under Category A, B, or D says that the minimum distance between a stack of propelling charges and
any other stack must be 100 feet.
