    Flare

    Can anyone help me with this flare?

    It is 55MM in diameter and 280MM Long.

    Looking for company/country of origin and internal drawings if possible.

    'JAS' is part of its nomenclature. As it is used in the SAAB BOZ 107 dispenser (and others) I would suspect SAAB is the manufacturer.

    The markings on this item confuse me. Mainly because the M designation in the US is the nomenclature.
    So what is the nomenclature of this?
    And what is the manufacturers code?

    The Swedish code would be 34106001.
    341 - Manufacturer (LACROIX MAZPREZ FRANCE)
    06 - Year
    001 - Lot

    here is a page from an older regulation. There the IR cartridge is still shown with the french inscription and the french manufacturer code LXT (STE LACROIX, TOULOUSE (HAUTE-GARONNE)).

    Hi,
    I also suspected a german, probably export item because of the german use of the description IR-PTR = InfraRot PaTRone. But, the rest of the designation numbers does not seem to be german.

    Hi Bellifortis,
    this are original Swedish markings. IR-PTR means Infraröd-Patron.
