Abstract : In March 1995, you asked us to review the production facilities available to support the military's ammunition requirements and the status of the ammunition stockpile. This report addresses your concerns about industrial base production facilities. Our review focused on the Department of Defense's (DOD) assessment of the industrial base's ability to supply ammunition to meet requirements for peacetime and for two major regional conflicts and to replenish the ammunition stockpile following those conflicts. We are issuing a separate report addressing your concerns about the status of the ammunition stockpile.
