The Family of Munitions Shipping and Storage Containers for the BSU/49, BSU/50 and MXU/650 Airfoil Groups (CNU-534/E, basic container without cushioning) are sealed, welded aluminum, controlled breathing, reusable containers. The containers are engineered for the physical and environmental protection of the bomb fins during worldwide transportation and storage. The containers consists of a base and a completely removable cover equipped with the special features listed below. The base is a one piece skid/double walled base extrusion with forklift openings, humidity indicator, pressure equalizing valve and desiccant port for easy replacement of desiccant (controls dehumidification). A silicone rubber gasket and quick release cam-over-center latches create a water/air-tight seal at the base-cover interface. Stacking pads on the lid provide for stacking of like containers up to 16 feet high. The container for the BSU/49 Airfoil Group (BSU/49 fins) is the Shipping and Storage Container CNU 335B/E. This uses the CNU 534/E with a shock and vibration isolation system provided by a 3.6 pound per cubic foot (pcf) polyethylene base cushion, and a 2.0 pcf polyethylene top cushion. The container for the BSU/50 Airfoil Group (BSU/50 fins) is the Shipping and Storage Container CNU 336B/E. The shock and vibration isolation system is similar to that used for the BSU/49 fins, with the CNU 534/E.
The container for the MXU/650 Airfoil Group (MXU/650 fins) is the Shipping and Storage Container CNU 505/E. The shock and vibration isolation system is similar to that used for the BSU/49 fins, with the CNU 534/E.
