US Cartridge, 60mm Training, M69

 

clip1501

Description

This cartridge is used for training in the loading and firing of 60mm mortars M2 and M19.

Unlike other mortar ammunition, the components of this round are issued separately. This facilitates replacement of damaged, worn, or expended parts. The complete round consists of an inert projectile, a fin assembly, an ignition cartridge, and a percussion primer. The pear-shaped, cast iron projectile has no provision for a fuze and is internally threaded at the base to accept the fin assembly.
