PIT STORAGE - BOMBS
TARAWA 
Pit Storage For Bombs Such units are usually present in the vicinity of air fields, often near plane shelters. Palm fronds are used as camouflage rather than sod or earth. These pits resemble those used to store fuel drums, differing only in the type of material present. However fuel drums create a much more regular evenly stacked effect and also generally yield a darker tone.
