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:
