Mortar Increments

60mm, 81mm and 120mm Mortar Increments

• WC 806 is a BALL POWDER® Propellant specifically designed to meet the ballistics requirements a 60mm mortar igniter propellant. This propellant has shown that it meets all requirements of this system.

• WC 808 is a BALL POWDER® Propellant specifically designed to meet the ballistics requirements of a 81mm mortar igniter propellant. This propellant has shown that it meets all requirements of this system.

• WC 815 (Military Designation-M38) is a BALL POWDER® Propellant patterned after the design of WC 819 for use in the U.S. 60mm mortar ammunition family. During qualification testing, it met all performance requirements of the 60mm system at a reduced charge weight over existing propellant.

• WC 816 (Military Designation-M48) is a newly developed and qualified BALL POWDER® Propellant for an improved ignition cartridge being implemented in the U.S. 120mm mortar ammunition family. In combination with new ignition cartridge design, WC 816 results in significant reductions in ignition cartridge residue over alternative designs.

• WC 819 (Military Designation-M38) is a BALL POWDER® Propellant specifically designed to meet the ballistic requirements of the U.S. 81mm mortar ammunition family. Since its qualification in 1985, WC 819 has been the propellant of choice for all U.S. 81mm mortar ammunition.

• WC 863 (Military Designation-M47) is a newly developed and qualified BALL POWDER® Propellant for the U.S. 120mm mortar ammunition family. It is currently the propellant of choice for the U.S. Government due to the significant reductions in residue demonstrated over alternative propellants.
