M360 105-mm GB cartridge

The body of the projectile is cast and finished from low-carbon steel. GB nerve gas agent is added to the interior of the body and sealed inside by press-fitting a steel burster well into the body. The M16 burster casing, containing an M40 tetrytol charge or an M40A1 composition B4 charge, is installed in the burster well. The assembly is completed by screwing an M508 or M557 point detonating fuze into the nose of the projectile and staking it in one or more locations. The projectiles are stored 24 per wooden pallet with 2 pallets bound together and secured with steel banding.
