activity will requisition the requirement. Requisitions
must contain the UIC of the support activity in the
MILSTRIP document number. The supplementary
address must contain the UIC of the user squadron and
the Signal code B. Ordnance should not be ordered by
using the squadrons UIC as the requisitioner.
Aircraft squadrons and squadron detachments
should submit requirements well in advance. The
squadron should also keep the ship or support facility
weapons department fully informed of their
requirements. This will permit timely requisitioning to
prevent shortfalls and minimize expensive problems
that arise from emergency requisitions.
Requisitioning by United States Shore
Activities Outside CONUS
United State shore activities outside the continental
United States must maintain 100 percent of the routine
fleet support requirement of their approved basic stock
level of ammunition (ABSLA) either on hand or on
order. When advised in advance of specific fleet
requirements, additional stock should be requisitioned
to meet the demand.
Normally, stock that satisfies the prepositioned war
reserve material requirements, as shown in the ABSLA,
are pushed to shore activities outside CONUS as assets
when transportation becomes available. However,
shore activities are responsible for maintaining
complete round assets.
Replacements should be
requisitioned by the shore activity when components
become unserviceable, issued, or expended.
All requisitions should be prepared in the format
previously discussed in this chapter and submitted to the
applicable inventory manager, listed in table 17-7. An
information copy must be provided to CINCLANTFLT
Special Requisitioning Procedures for Missiles
Special requisitioning procedures are part of an
intensified management program to control critical
assets and improve fleet readiness. Therefore, all
air-launch missiles (including 8E COG material), such
as the Seasparrow and Harpoon, must be submitted to
the inventory manager and NOC Mechanicsburg,
Pennsylvania, as indicated in table 17-8.
Requisitions must be submitted by naval message
not earlier than 90 days but not less than 60 days before
the RDD. The Seasparrow and Harpoon, when used as
point-defense missiles, are classified as surface-launch
missiles. They are managed by COMNAVAIRSYS-
COM and not by COMNAVSEASYSCOM.
Requisitions for lightweight torpedoes must be
prepared in message or DAAS MILSTRIP format. Do
NOT use DD Form 1348, and do not submit
requirements by mail.
There is a 90-day maximum and 45-day minimum
requirement lead time when requisitioning torpedoes for
complete loadouts and deployments. As a general rule,
torpedoes are requisitioned in a torpedo-tube
configuration, and air-launched accessories are
requisitioned as individual items.
Warshot torpedo requisitions from afloat units are
submitted directly to NOC with information copies to
CINCLANTFLT, the immediate operational
commander, and the activity where the torpedoes are to
be loaded (supplementary address).
Requisitioning Procedures for Mine Exercise
Training Material and Associated Services
A message request for mine exercise training
(MET) material must be submitted to the appropriate
mine assembly activity with the respective type
commander as an information addressee. The
