are used; LB = pounds, KG = Kilograms.
(8) Unit of Issue Cube (UICB). For the UICB, the following abbreviations

c. Volume II also contains NSN and Item Name Indexes. The NSN index is in
two parts. Part One (1) is an NSN index of the sets, kits, or outfits. It cross-references
the NSN to the fiche, frame number, and item numbers of the set kit or outfit. Items are
numbered consecutively within each item name instead of each frame as they are in
Volume I. Part Two (2) of the NSN index is a numerical list of NSNs (including
components) of all items in Volume II. Fiche and frame numbers appear, but since an
NSN may appear more than once, only the first appearance of the NSN will be reflected
in the index. The item name index only lists the name of the set, kit, or outfit and lists
the first fiche and frame number in which it appears.
