What are the names of the various types of artillery ammunition used by the British Army. I believe they are similar to the US types, but have different names.

Ammo types for the L118.

L31 = HE
L42 = Hesh
L51 = Smoke

Rounds for the AS90 Braveheart to follow. What other artillery systems are you modelling?

Thanks for the information Gary. :D

At the moment, I'm focusing on the FV432 81mm mortar carrier, L118, AS-90, and MLRS.

Many thanks for your assistance.

Hi D

L16A1 81mm Mortar

L15A3 = HE
L19A4 = Smoke


to the best of my knowledge the MLRS rounds have the same designations as the US rounds.

Hope this all help.
