Action Cases are pleased to be able to offer the UN-approved LWAC ( Light weight ammo case H83). LWAC weighs in at 0.75 kilos.

These nifty Ammunition cases are UN-Approved UN 4H2/21.5/S/15/DK/ETi-15003/PPD regulations (ADR convention) for safe land, air and sea transportation of hazardous goods.

  • Improved stacking capability which allowing cross stacking both 90⁰ and vertical stacking
  • Improved thermal capability, with reduced heat transfer
  • Prepared for built-in RFID tags for tracking and controlling
  • Low noise during handling and contact with steel surfaces

  • Fully compatible with existing steel boxes
  • Tested according to all applicable MIL-STD, STANAG / MOPI and DEF-STAN requirements
  • Fully recyclable / reusable
