A weapon infobox may be used to summarize information about a particular weapon or weapon system (such as a firearm, a sword, a grenade, an artillery piece, a torpedo, or a tank); cartridges and artillery shells should use {{Infobox firearm cartridge}} instead. The infobox should be added using the {{Infobox weapon}} template, as shown below:

Note: When using parameters, avoid the ambiguous abbreviation "N/A", and instead use "unknown" or "none". All subjective or qualitative judgements and numerical quantities or statistics must be cited to a reliable source (see WP:MILMOS#CITE).

The infobox is intended as a quick reference. Don't add non-data items, like question marks, “none”, “see text” or links to article sections (the article's table of contents already does this). Only add “unknown” to assert that an information point is unknowable, not as a placeholder to show that it is missing from the article. Choose a representative model and indicate what it is with the spec_label parameter, instead of listing multiple data items in one field.

The template can also be used for general categories of weapons, such as tank and Katyusha rocket launcher, by including only some general characteristics.

General parameters:

  • name – the formal name of the weapon.
  • imageoptional – an image of the weapon. The image must be given in the form File:Example.jpg in particular, the thumb attribute must not be selected.
  • image_size – the size (in pixels) the image should be. Only required if the image is not a sensible size without being changed, but normally set anyway. Typically set to 300.
  • altoptional – a description of the image that replaces the image if it fails to load.
  • captionoptional – the text to be placed below the image.
  • typeoptional – the type of weapon (e.g. "service rifle", "dress sword", and so forth).
  • originoptional – the country or place where the weapon originated or was first manufactured. Flag icons should not be used in this field, per WP:MOSFLAG and WP:MILMOS#FLAGS.

Type selection parameters (these parameters control whether—and how—particular specification fields will be displayed; multiple ones may be enabled where appropriate):

  • is_ranged – "yes" if the weapon is a ranged weapon, such as a firearm or bow; must be left blank otherwise.
  • is_bladed – "yes" if the weapon is a bladed, pointed, or blunt hand-held weapon, such as a sword, mace, or polearm; must be left blank otherwise.
  • is_explosive – "yes" if the weapon is an explosive device, such as a grenade or bomb; must be left blank otherwise.
  • is_artillery – "yes" if the weapon is a type of artillery, such as a cannon or mortar; must be left blank otherwise.
  • is_vehicle – "yes" if the weapon is a self-propelled vehicle, such as a tank; must be left blank otherwise.
  • is_missile – "yes" if the weapon is a self-propelled missile or torpedo; must be left blank otherwise.
  • is_UK – "yes" if the field labels should use British/Commonwealth English (calibre, armour); must be left blank otherwise.

Service history parameters:
