Appendix B
Diagrams of Chemical Munitions at Blue Grass Army Depot

Figures B-1 through B-3 are drawings of the M55 rocket, 155-mm projectile, and 8-inch projectile stored at the Blue Grass Army Depot. There are also 30 M56 rocket warheads stored at BGAD. These are the same as the upper part of the M55 rocket (they lack a lower shell section containing the rocket motor and propellant and tail fins) and are not depicted separately.
