122 mm How - Illuminating

This ammunition is intended for signaling or illuminating a designated area under conditions of poor visibility.

The projectile is hollow and contains a payload consisting of a parachute and illuminant assembly.

The illuminant is ignited and the parachute and illuminant assembly are ejected from the projectile by an expelling charge adjacent to a time fuze.

The parachute and burning illuminant assembly slowly descend, lighting the target area.
