    As you mentioned that some questions may still be "in process" does that mean that another set of Q&A will be released? If so, is there an anticipated date for that release?

    Strangely, I always thought NSN was National Stock Number, but after having the French army request the numbers, I did some research that indicated NATO Stock Number.  Just wondering which is correct????
