This is an Aerial view of the C-line Green Powder Area where Nitrocotton/Nitrocellulose (NC) was formed into the pellets called Smokeless Propellant. There were four of these lines, each capable of producing any size Smokeless Propellant.

All four lines were never operated at the same time so the full capacity of four lines running 24 hours/day 7days/week was never reached.

Some of the types of Smokeless Propellant and three of the many weapons that used it.
