Destruction of 155mm colored smoke projectile

Our teams on Friday safely destroyed a 155mm projectile and some propellant charges our disposal site in Trieu Trach Commune. Wrapped in green bags, the propellant charges were used by the 155mm Howitzer, one of the weapons deployed in the Viet Nam War, to fire projectiles as such. A 155mm projectile contained canisters filled with potassium nitrate for generating colored smoke when exploding.
