As proponent for development of all series airdrop rigging field manuals and the sling load manuals, it has been determined that the distribution restriction on these field manuals should be changed to read: Approved for public release, distribution unlimited.
It is requested that unrestricted release of these field manuals be made via the Army Training Digital Library. Enclosed you will find a numerical list and the number of changes of the manuals that have unlimited distribution. The point of contact for this action is Mr. Roger Hale, DSN References: a. The CINCs responses will be used to chart the direction and role for airdrop in the 21st century.
Based on the responses received enclosure , there is no strong support for LAPES airdrop capability at this time. Further, we will continue to maintain a range of airdrop capabilities to support all contingencies throughout the Army. EUCOM: Draft memorandum specifically states that the command support the need for a low level airdrop capability.
TRANSCOM: Memorandum does not specifically address any airdrop capability as it talks to the 21st century requiring the full spectrum of tactical delivery methods. Received verbal response on 16 Oct 96 stating command is indifferent on the specific capability received. Robison, Commander, U.

Guest, Commander, U. Army and other services recently have concurred that LAPES will be terminated, as this capability is no longer required as a viable wartime contingency airdrop option. CC WIU. SI SL L! T" AH. Army Aviation Troop Command. Subject : sab b. Phone conversation between CW4 Mahon.

Therefore, maintaining Joint Inspection training program is no longer required for this equipment. The metric platform interim rigging procedures are no longer valid as they apply to metric platforms. Those rigging procedures which have dual application with the type V platform are still valid for the type V platform.
Only those loads that specifically require this system are authorized use of this system. These authorized loads are specific in nature and will normally be found in the special operations arena of airdrop loads. This system is not authorized for use IAW ref d, above. John R.

This manual tells and shows how to rig the following series of trucks for low-velocity airdrop from a C, C, or C-5 aircraft: 1 M, 5-ton cargo truck 2 M54, 5 -ton cargo truck 3 M, 5-ton cargo truck 4 MA1, 5-ton cargo truck 5 M51, 5 -ton dump truck 6 M, 5-ton dump truck 7 M, 5-ton dump truck 8 MA2, 5-ton dump truck b. You are encouraged to report any errors or omissions and suggest ways for making this a better manual. Table Note: In the above descriptions, all weights and dimensions are rounded to the nearest pound and inch, respectively.
Special Considerations Special considerations for the type V platform are given below. If hazardous material is included, it must be pack- aged? When rigging the truck for low- velocity airdrop t use only type XXVI nylon webbing suspension slings, the M-2 cargo parachute release assembly. A copy of this manual must 1h; available to the joint airdrop inspectors during the before- and after-loading inspections- Modifying Truck The truck must be modified by qualified main- tenance personnel before it is delivered to the rigging site.
The following modifications must be made to all trucks to be rigged for In w- veloci ty and LAPE airdrops. Figure shows the loca- tion of the access holes in the body of the cargo truck. Kigure shows the location of the access holes in the body of the dump truck.
The truck must be modified as described in a l and 3.
Access holes cut in the body of the cargo truck CI. Accompanying Load An accompanying load may be rigged as part of any load listed in this manual. Description of Load The M ar M54, 5-ton cargo truck is rigged on a foot x type V airdrop platform with six GB cargo parachutes and other items of airdrop equipment.
This truck may be delivered by low- velocity airdrop from C- or CM 41 aircraft. The MS 13 truck is shown throughout this chapter.
Figure shows the unrigged M trunk. Adapt theae procedures as necnssaiy to rig your truck. Preparing Platform Prepare a foot, type V airdrop platform as described below.

The nose bumper may or may not be in- stalled. Measurements given in this section are from the front edge of the platform, NOT from the front edge of the nose bumper. Q-j Place a suspension link in the front of the right rail with the flat portion to the front of the rail. Slide the link along the rail until the holes in the link align with rail holes 9, 10, and 1 1.
Bolt the link in place with the bushing bolts.
Slide the link along the rail until the holes in the link align with rail holes 38, 39, and T Install two suspension links on the left rail, adapting the procedures in steps 1 through 4 above. Figure Install a tandem link on the front of each platform side rail using holes 1, 2, and 3. Install a clevis on bushings 1 and 3 of each front tandem link. Install a tandem link on the rear of each platform side rail using holes 46, 47 h and Starting at the front of each platform side rail, install devises on each platform side rail using the bushings bolted on holes 7, 14, 15, t6.
Starting at the front of the platform, number the clevises bolted to the right side from 1 through IS and those bolted to the left side from 1 A through 18A.
