I've got Carl G's in my Rifle company right now.  Currently they are being operated by Marines within the rifle platoons. Our 0351's at still running their SMAW's, but those are largely worn out crap at this point. We are still trying to figure out employment with our maneuver sections and as the Company GySgt, I am also trying to come up with ways for the guys to carry extra rounds, particularly in a jungle environment. Any of you guys who have ran these things for a while have suggestions for ammo carriage, I'm all ears, as I really don't want to make rifle squads carry  any extra stuff than they have to and right now the ideas being thrown around involve things like main rucks in the assault and other bad ideas....  

The thing in the above picture looks interesting if it is a stand alone unit that will protect the rounds in transit.

What packaging/containers are the 84mm rounds being delivered in?

Right now I have several of the 3 cell shipping containers with the handle on it that the rounds come in saved from previous ranges. Some have been filled with dirt and sealed for training purposes and others are empty just in case we need them but with us having the Carl G's in the rifle squads and not in the weapons platoon, we are trying to work through carriage options that don't degrade squad maneuverability too much.

OK...most of the ones I've played with have been doubles.

Are the three cells single mounding or riveted together?  Got a image?

If riveted together, separate by removing the rivets  & if single mounding, your friend the fine bladed hacksaw comes into play.  

You might have to sacrifice the middle cell to cut out two singles. 

Singles should give you more storage of transport options, better if you can add a sling to them.

If it has an NSN...
