This Ammodor custom cigar humidor is built by re-purposing a vintage CNU-317/E shipping and storage container acquired at surplus auction from the US Military. The CNU-317/E container was manufactured for Lockheed Martin to hold the laser guidance kit (front tip) of a GBU-12 PAVEWAY II laser-guided air-to-ground bomb.
The GBU-12 PAVEWAY II laser-guided bomb is an American aerial bomb based on the Mk 82 500-pound general-purpose bomb, but with the addition of a nose-mounted laser seeker (the “brains” of the bomb) and fins for guidance. Mounted on the front point of the bomb, this laser control system is officially called the MAU-169A/B guidance kit. This is the portion of the bomb that the CNU-317/E storage container originally housed. The Paveway II was mounted on and fired from various aircraft including A-7, A-10, B-52, F-111, F-117, F-15, F-16, F/A-18, and F-14.
The CNU Ammodor is 100% American made and built-to-order. Handcrafted by by our master craftsman and Vet, Jerry and Ammodors owner Kevin at our workshop in Richmond, VA. It is made with 1/4″ thick solid wood Spanish Cedar wall lining and 1/4″ Spanish Cedar plywood lid and floor lining. Measures around 4′ long x 1′ wide x 1′ tall and nearly 100lbs. Rated to hold 2000 cigars (measured using Corona size 5.5″ x 42 ring gauge) – over 4600 cubic inches of volume. For optimal organization and to ensure adequate air circulation, we recommend storing approximately 675 cigars inside.

Ammodors ammo can humidors are built using surplus ammo cans that have been proudly used by our Armed Forces. Due to this fact, the outside of the can may have minor scratches, dings or light exterior rust. Exterior markings and stencils will vary. Frankly, we think that’s what makes Ammodors so cool! Ammodors are tough, combat tested and look bad ass! If you’re looking for a “pretty” little cigar humidor, look somewhere else.
Ammodors believes in giving back to the men and women that put their lives on the line to protect our Country and our freedom – both current generation as well as previous. We make donations non-profit organizations such as Hope For The Warriors®, Humidors For Heroes™, USO and others.
