MJU-8/B Infrared Countermeasure Flare
The US Navy's MJU-8A/B is 5.8 inches long and 1.42 inches in diameter. Its composition is similar to Air ForceForce flares, except the end cap is aluminum instead of plastic, and a small aluminum cap (less than 0.5 inches in diameter) is used to contain the igniter composition. The inside diameter of the case forms a positive piston stop that reduces debris. The Mark 46 is identical to the MJU-8A/B except for burn time.
