a. TM 9-1300-206 is used to assist in the development of the ammunition storage facility, including the
determination of quantity-distance for the Class V items stored in the facility. The storage facility may be
(1) Theater Storage Area (TSA), which receives the majority of ammunition arriving in the theater of
(2) Corps Storage Area (CSA), where the required corps ammunition stocks are stored.
(3) Ammunition Supply Point (ASP), where the division's ammunition stockage is located.
(4) Ammunition Transfer Point (ATP), a forward support ammunition supply activity located in the
b. AMC-R Drawing 19-48-75-5, Index of U.S. Army Unitization, Storage and Outloading Drawings for
Ammunition and Components. The drawings this index covers contain detailed procedures for the safe
storage of ammunition.
(1) This document is divided into five general categories: conventional ammunition, chemical
ammunition, guided missiles, nuclear weapons, and ground support equipment.
(2) Each drawing is listed by a specific drawing file number. Example: 19-48-1-2-3-4-14-22PM1003.
NOTE: The 19-48 identifies the class and division of the series.
(3) Drawings are normally held by the ammunition surveillance section of the storage activity. They may
be ordered from the Army Defense Ammunition Center and School.
c. FM 9-6, Munitions Support in the Theater of Operations.
(1) FM 9-6 is the Army's principal document for ammunition support under AirLand Battle doctrine. This
manual implements two important doctrinal changes:

The storage, control and distribution of toxic chemical munitions (unitary chemical

d. FM 9-38, Conventional Ammunition Unit Operations.
(1) FM 9-38 provides guidelines for unit commanders, platoon leaders, section leaders, and other
supervisory personnel on conventional ammunition support operations at the direct support (DS) and
general support (GS) levels, during war or contingency tactical operations (WCTO).
(2) This document discusses several doctrinal changes. These changes, as with FM 9-6, include
MOADS and the new Tables of Organization and Equipment (TOE) for ammunition support, binary
chemical munitions support, host nation support, and WCTO ammunition support doctrine.
