The plum-coloured plastic ring at the nose of this mortar projectile (placed over its fuze) and the black plastic propellant cover (placed over its tail) are both fitted for transport and storage, before the projectile is loaded into a cardboard tube, and then packed into an outer crate. The propellant cover obscures the perforated cylindrical tail assembly in this image. (ARES)
This mortar projectile shows a good range of clear, interpretable markings. At the top is the calibre of the munition (60 mm), followed by the model designation (HE 60 MA), make/manufacturer signifier ('double-circle-ten', for Arsenal JSCo. in Bulgaria), the lot or batch number (02), a two-digit year code (for 2015), and the composition of the explosive fill (TNT).
