LINCLOE Small Arms Ammunition Case

  • FSN
  • 8465-464-2084
  • Specification
  • MIL-C-28981
Introduced in 1971 as part of the LINCLOE (Lightweight Individual Clothing & Equipment) program that lead to the ALICE system, these nylon pouches accommodated three thirty-round magazines for the M16 rifle. Though the later LC-1 cases had the same grenade pockets on each side and suspender snap eyelet on the back, the LINCLOE pouch uniquely had individual flap covers for each magazine compartment. The flaps were designed to ensure that the magazines remained in their proper positions when one was removed, but they also slowed magazine removal.

USMC adopted the LINCLOE pouches in 1972 and Marines guarding the U.S. embassy in Saigon in April 1975 are thought to have carried them.
