Ammunition date

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

I can't remember:

 

The dates given in the ammunition section of the mission editor are they the

"widespread expected to be in the ammo rack" date

or are they

"start of production, give it a year before widespread issue" date

 

?

 

Thanks

AFAIK it's the year of issue based off of my own research for the wiki, so the latter.

These dates are often enough not mentioned in the sources I use. So it's either a guesstimate, or it is the official date of introduction. If I can find it, I'm using the year of initial low rate production as the earliest conceivable date that a round might be used.

OK thanks

 

So for example the 105mm L52 APDS ('73) it would be ~ '74 before it would trickle down to the troops and ~'75 before export sales were made ?
