C. 99 feet.
When storing category F ammunition you must have 99 feet between barricaded FSUs if you
have 40 tons in either FSU (page 18, Figure 14).
Due to the reduced real estate requirements the modular storage system offers greatly
improved security with the same forces (page 8, para 5.c).
The Modular storage system is designed to store Quantity Distance Class 1.1 Ammunition
(page 7, para 5.a).
B. 225,000 lbs.
When using the modular storage system you may store 225,000 pounds NEW on each pad,
and 2,000,000 pounds in each module (page 8, para f).
Barricades should not be steeper than 1-1/2 to 1. So if you have a 20 foot high barricade, you
must have the base of the barricade at least 30 feet wide from the outer edge of the top of the
barricade (page 9, para g.2).
The bivouac area must be located 700 meters from the the storage area (page 3, para c.(1).
Dispersion of stocks will ensure that all stocks are not lost due to fire, accidental explosion or
enemy action (page 2, para (9)).
The sling-out area is constructed of concrete or asphalt overlaid with PSP/M8A1 (page 5,
D. Category D.
All incendiary ammunition is stored in category D (page 14, para b(4)).
A. Category A.
Semifixed ammunition is stored in Category A (page 14, para b(1)).
The minimum pad (width or depth), for 250,000 pounds of explosives in a modular cell is 40
feet (page 12, Figure 9).
The minimum height of the barricade above the top of the stack is 2 feet (page 12, Figure 9).
Forty feet must be maintained between unbarricaded stacks (page 18, Figure 14).
Three hundred feet must be maintained between unbarricaded FSUs (page 18, Figure 14).
