MIL-STD-2073/1E (W/ CHANGE-3), DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE STANDARD PRACTICE FOR MILITARY PACKAGING (20-NOV-2018)., This document outlines standard processes for the development and documentation of military packaging, as distinct from commercial packaging. This standard covers methods of preservation to protect materiel against environmentally induced corrosion and deterioration, physical and mechanical damage, and other forms of degradation during storage, multiple handling, and shipment of materiel in the defense transportation system. A decision chart is included for determining the applicability of commercial or military packaging practices (see figure 1). If military packaging is applicable, figure 1 will further aid in the development of detailed packaging requirements.
