AMMUNITION COLOR CODES

The color codes and markings in this appendix are for informational purposes only. They are provided to help you identify the different types of UXO. Keep in mind that each country that manufactures munitions has devised its own color codes. Remember, do not approach a UXO any closer than necessary to make an immediate identification. Remember also, that you are not responsible for determining UXO fillers.

The ammunition color codes in Tables A-1 and A-2 are used by the former Soviet Union. The markings used on Soviet chemical munitions are in Table A-3.

The color codes shown in Figure A-1 are those used by the US and other NATO countries.
