surveillance section will also determine if the stocks are packaged correctly for shipment. When the selection has
been approved by the surveillance section, an information copy of the DA Form 3151-R is sent to the storage
section so shipping requirements may be planned. The remaining copies of the DA Form 3151-R are placed in a
suspense file until transportation is available for shipping. An example of a completed DA Form 3151-R is shown
in Figure 1-4.
Palletize the Load
When DA Form 3151-R is received, the storage section prepares the shipment per instructions, if any, from the
surveillance section. For example, the surveillance section may have indicated the need to repalletize the stocks.
If this is the case, you will need to refer to AMC Drawing 19-48-75-5. An extract of AMC Drawing 19-48-75-5 is in
the publication extracts appendix at the back of this subcourse. To use this drawing, look at the Table of
Contents (Page i). You see that Chapter 1 of the drawing covers Conventional Ammunition and that General
Conventional Ammunition (13xx) is covered starting on Page 1-2. Since your requirement is to repalletize, look
on Page 1-2 for items on wooden pallets. You see that Item < 7 > deals with Boxed Ammunition and
Components on Wooden Pallets. Look at the entries listed under Item < 7 >. You see the word Unit, indicating
unitization, and the drawing number 19-48-4116-20PA1002 Revision 4*. The asterisk refers you to the note at the
bottom of the page. The note tells you that drawing 19-48-4116-20PA1002 includes appendixes for specific
items. These appendixes are a part of the basic drawing, but they are issued separately. The drawing number of
each appendix contains a sub-number for identification. For example, the drawing number of Appendix 0 is 19-
48-4116/0-20PA1002. Appendix 0 lists types of ammunition by national stock number (NSN) and their applicable
Now that you know the drawing number, look at the drawing itself. Refer to the appendix at the back of this
subcourse. DARCOM Drawing 19-48-4116-20PA1002 is actually a set of drawings that covers all types of boxed
ammunition. For this reason, the appendixes cannot stand alone and must be used with the basic procedures
drawing. The cover page of the basic procedures drawing explains the drawing and lists all revisions to the
drawing, if any. General Notes begin on Page 2. These general notes provide information about the palletization
operation and pertain to all of the appendixes. For example, General Note D.6. contains information about less-
than-full-layer unit loads. Before using the drawing, you must be familiar with these notes.
Once you are familiar with the general notes, look at Appendix 0. An extract from Appendix 0 is in the appendix
at the back of this subcourse. You see that the item, box dimensions, national stock number (NSN), and DODIC
for different types of ammunition are listed within boxes. The ammunition you are to ship is listed on DA Form
3151-R as Ctg, 81mm, HE, w/fuze PD and the NSN is 1315-00-935-6002. You find this NSN listed on Page 5 of
Appendix O. The appendix column (App No.) shows Appendix 43 as the drawing you are to use for palletization.
Now, look at the extract from Appendix 43 in the appendix at the back of this subcourse. The cover page of
Appendix 43 states that NSN 1315-00-935-6002 is packed three rounds per wooden box, 30 boxes per wooden
pallet. If you calculate the quantities listed on your DA Form 3151-R, you will find that all of the pallets will not be
full (324 90 = 3.6 pallets). Eighteen boxes will require the building of a light pallet.
