Military Specifications Drawings

Here are some common Mil-Spec drawings for cable, cable products and cable assemblies:

RR-W-410

This specification covers wire ropes and wire seizing strands. This specification does not include all types, classes, constructions, and sizes of wire rope and strand that are commercially available, but it is intended to cover the more common types, classes, constructions, and sizes that are suitable for federal government use.


MIL-DTL-83140

This specification covers the requirements for nonrotating, preformed stainless steel wire rope for aircraft rescue hoist and cargo handling winching applications. The word “cable” is used interchangeably with “wire rope” throughout this specification.


MIL-DTL-18375

This specification covers the requirements for nonmagnetic, corrosion- resistant steel wire rope used in aircraft flight controls. The wire rope will be capable of operation within a -65 °F to +250 °F (-54 °C to +121 °C) temperature range in wind, dust, fuel and oil spills, in aircraft wash-down and other environmental stresses and aircraft experiences.


MIL-DTL-83420

This specification covers the requirements for carbon steel and corrosion resistant steel aircraft control flexible wire rope. Type I wire rope will be capable of operation within a -65 °F to +250 °F (-54 °C to +121 °C) temperature range in wind, dust, fuel, and oil spills, in wash-down and other environmental stresses and aircraft experiences. Type II wire rope will be capable of operation within a -65 °F to +200 °F (-54 °C to +94 °C) temperature range in wind, dust, fuel, and oil spills, in wash-down and other environmental stresses and aircraft experiences.


MIL-DTL-87161

This specification covers the requirements for carbon steel and corrosion resistant steel wire strand used in aircraft application other than over sheaves.


MIL-DTL-781

This specification covers wire rope terminals designed for attachment to wire rope by swaging.


MIL-DTL-6117

This specification covers swaging terminals to wire rope to make up wire rope assemblies.


MIL-DTL-5688

This specification covers the proof testing and prestretching of wire rope assemblies.


MIL-T-5677 Thimbles

This specification establishes the requirements for aircraft wire cable thimbles to be furnished in the following grades, as specified:


MS-51844 Loop Sleeves

This specification covers copper, zinc plated and stainless steel oval loop sleeves.
