1. Make the following pen-and-ink note on page 1-9, Table 1-2, Ammunition Color Coding:
"NOTE: The color coding for Smoke, WP and PWP w/explosive burster for both the 2nd Generation and the 3rd
Generation are identical. The correct color coding for both these generations of WP and PWP ammunition is a yellow
band with red markings, as shown in the 2nd Generation."

2. Remove old pages and insert new pages as indicated below. New or changed material is indicated by a vertical bar in
the margin of the page.

Section IX. GROUND-TO-GROUND ROCKETS
5-23. General

a. Ground-to-ground rockets are large (762-millimeter), free flight, solid propellant field artillery ammunition. They
follow a ballistic trajectory similar to cannon-fired artillery projectiles, and are stabilized in flight by a combination of spin
and fins. They have a maximum range capability of approximately 35,000 meters.

b. The complete round (fig. 5-12) consists of a warhead section, motor body and fin assembly. The fuze is
considered a component of the warhead. The most commonly used is a mechanical time fuze which can be set to
function at 5 to 120 seconds.

c. These rockets are distinguished by an assembly of spin rockets mounted in pairs around a pedestal assembly
located between the warhead and the motor. When ignited, the spin rockets produce thrust which imparts a clockwise
spin to the rocket and reduces the effects of misalinement. Spin is maintained in flight by the cant of the tail fins. The
rocket is fired by remote control from a rail launcher.

Section X. AIRCRAFT ROCKETS
5-25. General

a. Aircraft rockets can be employed effectively
against other aircraft, personnel, personnel carriers,
ammunition storage areas, fuel tanks, radar equipment
and similar targets.

b. The folding fin aircraft rocket (FFAR) is a 2.75-
inch air-to-air, air-to-ground rocket designed for
deployment from highspeed fighter and attack aircraft.

c. The low-spin, folding fin aircraft rocket
(LSFFAR) is a 2.75-inch air-to-ground rocket deployed
from rotary wing and other low speed aircraft. It differs
from the FFAR primarily in that the nozzles are scarfed
to produce the low rate of spin required for launch at low
speeds.

5-26. Type

a. Depending upon the type of warhead
used, the complete round rocket (fig. 5-13) is classified
as high explosive, high-explosive antitank,
antipersonnel, spotting, smoke or practice.

b. These rockets, consisting of a warhead,
fuze, and motor-and-fin assembly, have the following
characteristics:
Velocity ........................ 1600-2200 fps
Range .......................... 500-800 m
Weight ......................... 18--29 lb
Length.......................... 48.8--2.8 in.
Type ..............................HE, HEAT, APERS, spotting,
......................................smoke and practice
Fuze............................. PD, PROX, PIBD
Stabilizer...................... Fin
Launcher...................... Aircraft (multiple, nested tubes)

Section XI. PRECAUTIONS IN STORAGE AND HANDLING

5-27. General

Assembled rockets (complete rounds) are generally
similar to rounds of artillery ammunition. In the event of
fire, however, unlike artillery ammunition, rockets ignited
accidentally may be propelled over wide areas, and the
range of the rocket must be considered in establishing
danger areas (TM 9-1300-206). Because of this unusual
explosive hazard, the precautions listed below will be
observed in addition to those in chapter 1.

5-28. Care and Handling

a. Because solid propellant compositions in rocket
motors deteriorate readily, especially under extremes of
temperature and humidity, keep rockets dry and cool.

b. Do not expose rockets to direct rays of sun.
c. Never store rockets where temperatures exceed

limits marked on items.
d. See that no moisture enters fuze or motor.
