Welcome to the Weaponry task force. If you have any questions about articles or are generally seeking advice, you're encouraged to ask at the main military history talk page, or you can directly approach one of the task force participants below.

The coordinators of the Military history WikiProject can be contacted here.

Scope[edit]

This task force covers all topics related to weaponry, including weapons, armor, explosives, ammunition, and armoured fighting vehicles; it can be considered to be a subgroup of the military science and technology task force, whose scope includes every such topic.

Any article related to this task force should be marked by adding Weaponry-task-force=yes to the {{WPMILHIST}} project banner at the top of its talk page (see the project banner instructions for more details on the exact syntax). This will automatically place it into Category:Weaponry task force articles.
