3. Quantity on hand a. Serviceable b. Unserviceable/suspended 4. Allowance 5. Percent of allowance on board The foregoing data is provided by Navy Ammunition Logistics Code (NALC), Department of Defense Identification Code (DODIC), or by activity (listing the NALCs/DODICs carried by each activity). The accuracy of CAIMS relates to the ammunition actually on hand at your command. Therefore, you must accurately report all receipts, issues, Condition code changes, and inventory adjustments. Currently, Navy activities report to CAIMS by two methods— transaction item reports (TIRs) and ammunition transaction reports (ATRs). TIRs are transceived daily by activities that use automated information systems. ATRs are submitted by fleet activities via naval messages. AMMUNITION REQUISITIONING AND TURN-IN PROCEDURES LEARNING OBJECTIVE: Use the terms and definitions associated with ammunition requisitioning and turn-in; describe the procedures to be followed when preparing requisition documents; identify the variables that affect requisitioning by fleet units; and describe file maintenance procedures, turn-in procedures, and temporary custody of ordnance ashore. The military standard requisitioning and issue procedures (MILSTRIP) are used for ordering all ordnance. MILSTRIP/MILSTRAP Manual, NAV- SUP P-437, and Afloat Supply Procedures Manual, NAVSUP P-485, provide complete MILSTRIP procedures. Each fleet commander (CINCLANTFLT and CINCPACFLT) issues instructions that provide detailed guidance for requisition and turn-in of ammuni- tion within their jurisdiction, The information and procedures in both instructions are basically the same. For simplicity, the information in this chapter pertains to units within the Atlantic Fleet and European areas. (The references are CINCLANTFLT- INST 8010.4 and NAVORDCENINST 8010.2.) TERMS AND DEFINITIONS Because you work with ordnance, you need to be familiar with ammunition terms and definitions. Some terms are discussed in more detail later in this chapter. The following terms and definitions are used throughout this chapter: All-Up-Round (AUR). An AUR is a weapon that is issued as a complete assembly (less wings and fins). Ammunition. Ammunition is conventional expendable ordnance material, which includes gun-type ammunition, bombs, rockets, ASW weapons, guided missiles, mines, torpedoes, demolition, and pyrotechnic materials. For the purpose of this discussion, ammunition includes all items assigned a four-digit NALC as listed in the publication Navy Ammunition Logistics Codes, NAVAIR 11-1-116B/TW010-AA- ORD-030. This also includes OT-cognizance material (Marine Corps expendable ordnance). Ammunition allowances. Ammunition allowances are established to maintain operational units in a mission-ready posture. The different types and quantities of ammunition a unit is allowed to carry depends upon the unit’s mission assignment. Also, a unit’s ammunition allowance reflects allowances for training, peacetime missions, and wartime missions. Ammunition allowance lists are approved by the Chief of Naval Operations. Ammunition stocking level lists identify the type and quantity of combat ordnance authorized to be carried on board. Separate cargo and/or mission load ammunition allowance lists are provided for combat landing force (CLF) ships, amphibious force ships, tenders and aircraft carriers, which are developed by the fleet and type commanders. These lists identify the ordnance authorized to support the mission assignment. A few of the ammunition allowances are described in the following statements. Approved basic stock level of ammunition (ABSLA) is the quantity of non-nuclear ordnance at a shore facility to support all aspects of that activity’s mission until resupply can be effected. Cargo load allowance is the allowance of ammunition carried by AE, AOE, AOR, and AO class ships. This ammunition is issued to other fleet units in support of their assigned mission. Mission load allowance is the allowance of ammunition carried by CV, LPH, AD, and AS class ships in support of their assigned mission, exclusive of the ships’s own armament. Shipfill allowance (formerly ship’s service allowance)  is the allowance of ammunition for the ship’s permanently installed armament. Shipfill ammunition does not include-ammunition held for issue to other activities. 17-5
