Abstract : This project was initiated to design, fabricate, test and provide production drawing package for the Family of Munitions Container (FMC) #3. This project was in support of PRAM project 21989-01. FMC #3 is designed to hold 12 BSU/49, 2 BSU/50 or 6 MXU/ 650 Airfoil Groups. This will replace three different containers, all of which are top opening, therefore making it very difficult for the user to remove the airfoil group from the container. FMC#3 (CNU 534/E) is a welded aluminum container. This container is not painted which reduces the original cost ofthe container, environmental hazardous waste and the life-cycle costs of the container. FMC#3 is a bottom opening container, similar to a butter dish design. The fins sit on their aft end in the base of the container this allows the user to easily prepare the fin for placement on the bomb. The empty container (CNU 534/E) is made unique by each airfoil group's own unique cushioning system to hold each different type of airfoil group. (MM)
