This thesis examines the current and the future efforts to modernize ammunition handling capability in the Republic of Korea and the United States. It describes how these improvement programs will enhance the current capability of Chinhae, Korea and Concord, California, the proposed containerized ammunition handling ports of the two countries, to ensure success of the Major Regional Conflict-West (MRC-W) scenario as outlined in the Mobility Requirements Study (MRS) 1992. Also, various containerized ammunition related issues such as the lessons learned from TURBO Containerized Ammunition Distribution System (CADS) Exercise 1994 and Desert Storm/Desert Shield are discussed
