US Army Case, Medical Instrument and Supply Set NO.5 - M5 medical bag




NSN : 6545-00-912-9870
Empty CLS Bag, Nylon, OD Green
January 01, 1962



The 6545-912-9890 number is a Federal Stock Number (FSN) for the M5, BUT the FSN number ceased being used in September 1974. The number should be the 13-digit National Stock Number (which would look like 6545-00-912-9890) for a M5 pack made after September 1974.
The M5 was replaced with the MOLLE Medic Bag, commonly referred to as a "Mike Bag"
NSN 8465-01-580-2779
