Mk46 Mod 1C infrared (ir) decoy flare
Mk46 Mod 1C infrared (ir) decoy flares are magnesium-teflon-based items that present a heightened safety concern with their integral pull-wire igniter design and intense fireball result. For this reason these devices are being removed from combatant ships and replaced with MJU-32/B devices.
