Illuminating cartridge with white star having a 79mm black cardboard case as well as a brass base
having half notched beads. The operculum while it is white with a black capital M affixed in relief.
As early as 1940, this 105g cartridge sported the standard size of 83mm and was made of light alloy.
Its base remains the same, that is to say half notched while its white cover receives either an embossed
black M or, for late manufacturing, a printed M. In addition, the date of manufacture and expiration are
affixed in small black or red on the case; and a black band 1cm high is placed 2.5cm from the base.
The effect produced is a white star that can reach 180-200 meters in height for a period of 2-5 seconds
allowing it to be visible in broad daylight at 7-8km.
