The MIL-STD-1168 is a set of standard codes used to identify munitions. It was designed to replace the previous confusing Ammunition Identification Code system used by the US Army Ordnance Corps.
Purposes lot numbering ammunition items and creation of ammunition data cards as outlined in this document to ensure the identification of homogeneous materiel necessary to ensure accurate control of parts during development and pilot phases, during movement of goods from production line to production line, from plant to plant, from plant to warehouses, while on the stand or in the field, on the use of the service, to ensure proper establishment and maintenance of surveillance records, and to provide means for the correct determination of materiel when withdrawal of defective, deteriorated required, hazardous or obsolete ammunition and energetic equipment from the service. Lot numbering and ammunition data cards also provide documentation and traceability for ammunition lot.
1. Pre-Standard Lot Code Format 1942?-1965. (Предварительно Стандартного Лота Код Формат 1942?-1965)
The format used in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s, years in the format LLL-NNN or LL-NN-NNN. In this example, the "L" stands for letter and "N" represents the number.
The first two or three letters LL or LLL was code for manufacturers. Every manufacturer had a code name. The numbers were a lot serial number. It was initially 3 or more digits. A lot of numbers also begin a very long time. The decision to destroy the many serial number in block 1 or 2 numbers called the Lot Interfix, running from 01 to 99 and lot number, which consisted of 3 or more digits.
There was confusion in the beginning due to the lack of strict standards and control. Some contractors will use the numbering for each type of ammunition they produce, that is, there will be many different types of ammunition manufactured at different times, and that would be the same number. Others are different types of ammunition produced at the same time in the same block a lot of numbers. This sorted out before the end of the Second world war, when it became possible more supervision.
1.1. Pre-Standard Lot Code Format 1942?-1965. Ammunition Crates. (Снаряжения)
The ammunition boxes were marked with the alphanumeric code identifying the ammunition in the top right corner. Weight in kg and volume in cubic feet were stamped in the lower left corner. Lot code was stamped in the lower right corner. The text in the center of the front panel the full amount and the type of the contents of the box contained. Types of ammunition was marked with colored bands on the pre-war 1920 to 1930 and in the beginning of the war of the 1940s, the drawers, the strips were duplicated on the boxes of ammunition inside of them. Types of packages have been marked with pictograms.
1.2. Pre-Standard Lot Code Format 1942?-1965. Ammunition Packing Codes. (Упаковка Боеприпасов Кодов)
Ammunition packaging type was appointed producers with an additional letter code. It was added as a code letter between the code producer and the Interfix number or as a prefix or suffix to the lot serial number.
- Belted ammunition loaded into a cloth ammo belt was designated with a "B" e.g., LC-01-B1234. This was usually for rifle ammunition that met minimum standards for accuracy Class 2. It was used in medium and heavy machineguns.
- Linked ammunition loaded into a disintegrating metal link ammo belt was designated with an "L" e.g., FA-01-L1234. This was for rifle and heavy machinegun ammunition that met standards Class 1 and had a higher standard of reliability. It was used in aircraft and anti-aircraft machineguns.
- Ammunition in clips loaded in clips and packed in either cartons or bandoleers was designated with a "C" e.g., WRA-01-C1234. This was for rifle ammunition that met standards Class 1. It was used in rifles and light machineguns.
1.3. Pre-Standard Lot Code Format 1942?-1965. Foreign Manufacturers. (Иностранных Производителей)Foreign manufacturers added a letter code prefix to their Lot Sequence Number.
- Nationalist Chinese / Taiwanese manufacturers used a C-prefix e.g., 58-01-C1234. Taiwanese manufacturers used the Factory or Arsenal number i.e., Factory 58 used "58" as a Manufacturing Code or cartridge headstamp.
- Japanese manufacturers used a J-prefix e.g., TE-01-J1234.
- European manufacturers used an E-prefix e.g., HP-01-E1234.
1.4. Pre-Standard Lot Code Format 1942?-1965. Navy Lot Numbers
The Navy used different numbering systems for explosives, propellants, pyrotechnics and chemical labeling and screening equipment and rocket engines: NN-LLL-MMHG
The first part NN is a sequence number following manufacturers of 2 or 3 letter code and four-digit number that specifies the two-digit month and two digit year of manufacture. For example, 123-Joop-0554 so it was lot 123, made by the Joliet ammunition plant JOP in may 1954.
1.5. Pre-Standard Lot Code Format 1942?-1965. Navy Lot Numbers 1960-1967. (Большое Число ВМС 1960-1967)
For most of the 1960-ies there was another system used for smoke grenades: NNN / N - G / M - NNNN there is no Slash in the actual lot number, it is used here to distribute serial number information into sub-groups. For example, a large number of 1023-65-1234.NNN / N represents the 3-digit manufacturer code and the number of the production line e.g., 1023 would be Line 3 at Pine Bluffs Arsenal 102). Y / M indicates the last digit of the two-digit financial year which runs July to June and the one-digit financial bi-monthly code e.g, 65 would be March / April of 1966. NNNN represents the serial number e.g., 1234 of the lot.

2. MIL-STD-1168 Ammunition Lot Numbering. (Мил-СТД-1168 много боеприпасов нумерации)
The "Old Standard". This system uses two code marks.
Federal number of shares of FGC was an 11-digit code that indicates the contents and the package. The first four digits comprise the Federal stock composition group, type, and family the element belongs.
- Small Arms Ammunition weapons with a bore up to 30mm are given the FSCG prefix of 1305.
- Heavy Weapons Ammunition weapons with a bore greater than 30mm are given the FSCG prefixes of 1310 30mm through 75mm, 1315 75mm through 125mm, or 1320 greater than 125mm.
Department of defense DODIC identification code is an alphanumeric designation of the goods. It starts with a letter code and a 3-digit code.
- The Department of Defense Ammunition Code DODAC is an 8-symbol 7 digits and a letter hybrid code designation. It uses the munitions four-digit Federal Supply Classification Group the first four digits of the items FSN followed by its alphanumeric DODIC. It is used mostly when filling out ammunition record sheets. This is done to prevent errors and confusion during ammunition transactions.
2.1. MIL-STD-1168 Ammunition Lot Numbering. Standard Lot Code 1965-1975. (Стандартный Лот Код 1965-1975)
The lot number in the format: LLL-NN-NNN in this example, the "L" stands for letter and "N" represents the number.
The first two or three letters LL or LLL was code for manufacturers. Every manufacturer had a code name.
The next two digits were the Interfix Number”. This indicates the batch part of the lot, allowing the lot sequence number to be reused later. These are numbered from 01 to 99.
The last digit is the serial number, called a lot number. It can be 3 or more digits.
For example, to combine bio-carbon the ABC code makes the shipment of 40mm low-velocity grenades and shells. Lot Interfix number #12, the sequence number #345. A lot of code is ABC-12-345.
2.2. MIL-STD-1168 Ammunition Lot Numbering. Ammunition Crates. (Снаряжения)
The ammunition boxes were marked with the fsn and DODIC along the top of the front panel. Early boxes from 1949 to 1956 also included the alphanumeric identification code of the munitions in the upper right corner. Weight in kg and volume in cubic feet were stamped in the lower left corner. Lot code was stamped in the lower right corner. The text in the center of the front panel the full amount and the type of the contents of the box contained.
2.3. MIL-STD-1168 Ammunition Lot Numbering. Ammunition Boxes. (Ящики С Боеприпасами)
Each ammunition box was marked with the fsn and DODIC along the top of the box. It has also been embossed with the marking of ammunition and the type i.e., 5.56 mm ball M193 NATO, and were symbols indicating the method of packing, clips or cartons, bandoleers, or containers.
3. MIL-STD-1168A Ammunition Lot Numbering - Revision A. (Мил-СТД-1168A боеприпасов много нумерация версий)
"The New Standard".
In FSN was replaced on 30 September 1974, at the National stock, the 13-digit code. The first 4 digits make up the national stock composition of the group, specifying the group and class materials.
3.1. MIL-STD-1168A Ammunition Lot Numbering - Revision A. Lot Number. (Лот №)
The lot number in the following format: LL - NN - l - NN - NNNL. In this example, the "L" stands for letter and "N" represents the number.
The first section of ll or lll is the manufacturers code, which consists of two or three letters.
The second section NNL-date code. It consists of the last two digits of year of manufacture and a suffix letter indicating the month of production:
The letter "I" is omitted, because it can be mistaken for the numeral "1" or the letter "J". The letter "O" is omitted, because it can be mistaken for the numeral "0".
After date code is the third section: the Interfix number NN, which can be 2 or more digits. This indicates the batch the item belongs to.
The last section is the lot sequence number NNN-l, which is 3 or more digits. The serial number of the lot.
One-character alphabetic suffix may be added to the many parents ordinals for various reasons. This item may have been made on another machine or production line than the rest of the batch or part batch was found a defect of quality control. The letters "I" and "o" are omitted because they can be mistaken for the numbers "1" and "0" and "E" and "X" have been omitted because they can be mistaken for letter codes for the pilot lot of ammunition.
As an example, a large number will be: FS-77-a-123-456A. This will mean that the contractor Frankfort Arsenal made the point in January 1977 and that he was rework "a", i.e. second part of item 456-m of the 123-series. If the second revision was made on the product code would be FA-77-a-123-456B and so on.
3.2. MIL-STD-1168A Ammunition Lot Numbering - Revision A. Explosives Lot Numbers. (Много Взрывчатки Чисел)
Explosives, propellants, pyrotechnics and chemical labeling and screening equipment and rocket engines use a different numbering system: LL / NNNN / LLL / NN no dashes in the actual lot number, they are there to break the lot number on identifiable subgroups.
LL NNNN was the lot number, the letters LL, Lot Interfix and sequence numbers NNNN a lot. The next set of letters are the manufacturers code, followed by two digits of year of manufacture NN. For example, AB1234HAW76 will be a lot of AB1234, made or repacked naval ammunition depot Hawthorne in 1976.
4. MIL-STD-1168B Ammunition Lot Numbering and Ammunition Data Cards - Revision B. (Боеприпасов много нумерация и карты данных боеприпасов - редакция B Mil-с std-1168B)
This fusion of Mil-std-1167 ammunition data card MIL-std-1168 lot numbering of ammunition in a single standard for both systems. Unlike previous iterations used a dash between the sections, the new system just puts a dash between the lot Interfix and sequence numbers. A lot of codes between 13 and 14 characters.
In this system, 3-digit Interfix number will be the key to a lot of code. It will be used for the same or similar products at the same time on the same production line in the same facility. The Interfix number will be distinguished from a 3-digit many of the sequence numbers allotted to each item.
The system still uses the same 2 - and 3-letter production code the 2-digit year of production month of production and letter codes. Even if the year or month changes in Interfix code will remain the same until its a combination of everything.
For example, combining organic carbon AVS makes a point-detonating M1, M2 of air-burst, and M3 ricochet Fuze for 40mm grenades low speed of the projectile. They all have 123 Lot # Interfix, but many sequence numbers are assigned in alternating blocks. Grenade M1 shells get many numbers of the sequence -001, -004, and -007, the shells m2 you many numbers of the sequence -002, -005, and -008, and M3 shells a lot of the sequence numbers -003, -006, -009 I. M1 will be a lot of parties coded as ABC99L123-001 made in November 1999, ABC99M123-004 made in December 1999 and ABC00A123-007 made in January 2000. When these items were made new lot sequence number in the series will be assigned Interfix.
New numbers Interfix is usually issued when all combinations Interfixs a lot many numbers of the sequence 001-999 was used. They will also be issued for a variety of other reasons:
- If a previous lot was found to be defective or sub-standard and the line was stopped until quality control measures were used to correct the problem.
- If an item was declared obsolete or limited standard and further production is to cease.
- If a variant design or improvement was incorporated in the item.
- If a production line was stopped to be overhauled or updated and an alternate, different, or new production line was used instead.
5. MIL-STD-1168C Ammunition Lot Numbering and Ammunition Data Card - Revision C. (Мил-СТД-1168C боеприпасов много нумерация и боеприпасов, данные карты - редакция c)
The lot number is from 13 to 16 characters long. There are no spaces between characters in a large number.
Lot of ammunition alphabetic identifier is used for non-standard plenty of ammunition.
Lot of ammunition letter suffixes can now walk to the two letters from the letters from A to Z, then AA through ZZ.
Lot theater indicator ammunition is an optional letter specifying the code of the ammunition designed for the active theater. This makes it easier to track ammunition that was returned to stores from the combat zone. It can also be used to select ammunition that may need to be checked and restored as a result of possible improper handling and / or storage.
5.1. MIL-STD-1168C Ammunition Lot Numbering and Ammunition Data Card - Revision C. Lot Number. (Лот №)
The lot number format: LLH / NNL / NNNH / NNNLL / L. In this example, "L" represents the letter "N" denotes number, and "h" stands for a hyphen. Slashes have to break a lot of code into separate parts.
In the first section of the LLH or LLL is the three-character manufacturers distinguishing mark which consists of two or three letters. If its only two letters long, the hyphen is added at the end to balance it.
The second section NNL-date code. It consists of the last two digits of year of manufacture and the letter suffix a-M indicating the month of production.
Third NNNH section number lot Interfix, which consists of three digits. This is usually followed by a hyphen in a standard lot, but can be carried out a lot of ammunition ID code if it is non-standard.
NNNLL the fourth section of the lot sequence number that has three or more digits. It may be followed by one or two ammunition lot suffix letter code, if there were any interruptions or changes in production for any reason, but descended into a homogeneous mass.
The fifth section L is the indicator ammunition lot theater.
5.2. MIL-STD-1168C Ammunition Lot Numbering and Ammunition Data Card - Revision C. Examples. (Примеры)
Currently there is no indicator light theatre letter code "I", it is used only as an example. N / a means not applicable, this designation is not used in this game.
