Decision of the Joint Consultative Group on an Additional Procedure for Reduction by Destruction of Artillery Limited by the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe

8 March 1994

Pursuant to Section I, paragraph 5 of the Protocol on Procedures Governing the Reduction of Conventional Armed Forces in Europe of 19 November 1990, the Joint Consultative Group decided on 8 March 1994 that the additional procedure for reduction by smashing of non­self­propelled guns, howitzers, artillery pieces combining the characteristics of guns and howitzers, or mortars, as specified in the following text, shall be sufficient for carrying out the reduction of conventional armaments and equipment limited by the Treaty. This decision does not prejudice any State Party's right to apply the reduction procedures as set forth in aforementioned Protocol or to apply the additional procedures for reduction set forth in the decision of the Joint Consultative Group of 11 May 1993, 29 June 1993 and 12 October 1993.

ADDITIONAL PROCEDURE FOR DESTRUCTION BY SMASHING OF NON­SELF­PROPELLED GUNS, HOWITZERS, ARTILLERY PIECES COMBINING THE CHARACTERISTICS OF GINS AND HOWITZER, OR MORTARS

  1. A heavy steel wrecking ball, or the equivalent, shall be dropped repeatedly into the artillery systems until the following kinds of damage appear:

    1. for guns, howitzers, artillery pieces combining the characteristics of guns and howitzers:

      1. the tube shall be visibly cracked or bent;

      2. the breech system shall be visibly deformed;

      3. the attachments between the tube and the breech ring and between one of the trunnions of the cradle and the upper carriage shall be sufficiently deformed to make them further inoperative;

      4. the trails shall be sufficiently deformed to make them further imperative;

    2. for mortars:

      1. the tube shall be visibly cracked or bent; and

      2. the base plate shall be sufficiently deformed to make it further inoperative.
