15 JANUARY 2008
TM 9-1095-212-13&P
WARNING SUMMARY
Air Bank is heavy (approx. 88 pounds) and requires a 2-person lift using the two spring-loaded lifting handles to prevent
personnel injury. Do not use transfer case handle to lift the Air Bank.
Only FN303 Projectiles are approved for use with the FN303 Launcher. Serious personnel injury or launcher damage may
result from use of Non-FN303 Projectiles.
Handle Air Bank with extreme care during ground transport. Avoid dropping or sudden impact to prevent cylinders from rupturing and causing serious injury.
Air reservoirs and Air Bank cylinders will be shipped depressurized to less than 20 psi absolute (IAW DOT 49 CFR 173.115)
when transported by air. A sudden change in altitude may cause pressurized Air Bank cylinders to burst.
Operators are required to wear safety eyewear and single hearing protection during air reservoir filling procedures.
DO NOT drop, dent, or puncture the FN303 Air Reservoir. Mishandling may result in death, injury, or malfunction.
Do not alter or modify the FN303 Air Reservoir.
Do not expose filled air reservoirs to any heat source, flame, or condition where the temperature may exceed 130°F (54°C).
Always store air reservoirs in a cool, dry area. Air reservoirs exposed to fire or heat in excess of 350°F (176°C) must be
condemned.
DO NOT exceed maximum allowed pressure of 3000 psi in the FN303 Air Reservoir.
Do not put fingers or hands between lower and upper stock assemblies when assembling launcher.
Only FN303 Air Reservoirs filled with scuba breathable air are permitted to be used with the FN303 Launcher. Serious personnel injury or launcher damage may result from the use of Non-FN303 air reservoirs.
A filled or partially filled air reservoir contains high pressure air. Always handle the air reservoir with care. Do not drop, dent,
or puncture the air reservoir. Mishandling may result in malfunction or serious injury.
Do not use cracked, damaged, or dirty projectiles.
Do not insert fingers into magazine well. Serious injury will occur since the bolt impacts any obstruction placed in the
magazine well if the launcher is fired.
Always keep loaded launcher pointed downrange.
If FN303 Launcher is dropped or struck with the safety lever in the FIRE position, it could discharge.
Never aim launcher towards the neck or head of the target. Engaging the target at these regions of the body may result in
permanent injury and/or death to the target.
When in close range (within 5 meters) of the target, always aim lower than the center of mass, preferably toward the thighs.
Never look down the launcher barrel from the muzzle end, even if the launcher appears to be clear.
DO NOT touch or adjust regulator or regulator lock nut. Projectiles could be launched at lethal velocity due to rapid air loss.
Do not attempt to remove magazine spring housing. Magazine spring is under tension and can cause serious injury if securing
tabs are loosened or broken off.

TM 9-1095-212-13&P
WARNING SUMMARY - Continued
When replacing the high pressure FN303 air supply hose, only another high pressure FN303 air supply hose is allowed to be
used on the FN303 Launcher. Non-FN303 air supply hoses with the same threading and coupler are not tested and may not
safely handle the 3000 psi pressure from the air reservoir. Injury and/or launcher failure may result.
Safety eyewear must be worn to prevent eye injury in the event that the valve assembly may still contain some air pressure.
When the valve assembly, presumably under pressure, is removed from the lower stock assembly, the ON/OFF valve may expel
towards the face and cause injury.
Wear eye protection when removing and installing spring-loaded components. Failure to do so could cause serious eye injury.
Operators must wear safety eyewear and single hearing protection when purging the Air Bank to prevent injury and hearing loss.
Always carefully handle and transport scuba tank(s) IAW local SOP to prevent personnel injury.

CORROSION PREVENTION AND CONTROL (CPC)
Corrosion Prevention and Control (CPC) of Army materiel is a continuing concern. It is important that any corrosion problems with this item be reported so that the problem can be corrected and improvements can be made to prevent the problem in
future items.
Corrosion specifically occurs with metals. It is an electrochemical process that causes the degradation of metals. It is commonly caused by exposure to moisture, acids, bases, or salts. An example is the rusting of iron. Corrosion damage in metals
can be seen, depending on the metal, as tarnishing, pitting, fogging, surface residue, and/or cracking.
0001 00-1
TM 9-1095-212-13&P
0001 00
Plastics, composites, and rubbers can also degrade. Degradation is caused by thermal (heat), oxidation (oxygen), solvation
(solvents), or photolytic (light, typically UV) processes. The most common exposures are excessive heat or light. Damage
from these processes will appear as cracking, softening, swelling, and/or breaking.
SF 368 (Product Quality Deficiency Report) should be submitted to the address specified in DA PAM 750-8, The Army Maintenance Management System (TAMMS) Users Manual.
DESTRUCTION OF ARMY MATERIEL TO PREVENT ENEMY USE
If the FN303 Launcher is so badly damaged that it cannot be used either by repair or cannibalization, remove air reservoir from
launcher and destroy launcher by cutting or crushing.
PREPARATION FOR STORAGE OR SHIPMENT
When transported by air, FN303 Air Reservoirs and the Portable Air Bank must be shipped depressurized to less than 20 psi
absolute (IAW DOT 49 CFR 173.115). A sudden change in altitude may cause pressurized air bank tanks to burst open. See
WP 0036 00, Preparation for Long Term Storage or Shipment of Portable Air Bank, for purging instructions.

TM 9-1095-212-13&P
COMPONENT
0002 00
DESCRIPTION
1/4 Turn Air Valve
The 1/4 turn air valve permits and restricts the flow of air from the air reservoir to the
launcher’s valve assembly. When Open, the valve assembly is pressurized and the
launcher will cycle when the trigger is pulled. When Closed, the valve assembly
remains pressurized and should still be considered armed until clearing procedures take
place to depressurize the valve assembly.
Safety Lever
The safety lever physically blocks and prevents movement of launcher’s trigger. The
safety internally locks and secures the sear. The safety lever cannot be placed in SAFE
position unless the trigger is in the forward position. The launcher cannot be fired unless
the safety lever is in FIRE position.
Trigger
The trigger controls the firing of the launcher. When the valve assembly is pressurized,
the trigger will move to the forward position. When the valve assembly is cleared and
depressurized, the trigger can move freely until the safety lever is in SAFE position.

LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION OF MAJOR COMPONENTS - PORTABLE AIR BANK
The Portable Air Bank is used to refill FN303 Air Reservoirs. The capacity is 4300 psi of breathable scuba air. It can refill
approximately 15 to 20 reservoirs when it is fully charged. When the pressure drops to 3000 psi, the air bank should only be
refilled with breathable scuba air using a compressor. The air bank is contained in a hard plastic transfer case and can be
moved with the built-in wheels and the handle, or it can be lifted by two people using the spring-loaded lifting handles.
COMPONENT
DESCRIPTION
Air Bank Cylinders
There are two fiberglass-wrapped air bank cylinders inside the Air Bank transfer case.
The cylinders hold the breathable scuba air with a pressure of up to 4350 psi. They are
DOT E 9634 and require hydrostatic testing every three years by an authorized DOT cylinder retester.
HP Transfer Hose
The HP transfer hose is approximately 12 inches long. The HP transfer hose has a
knurled quick connect that fits over the FN303 air reservoir filling nipples labeled
“FILL”.
Quick Connect
The knurled quick connect is located at the end of the HP transfer hose and ensures a
secure connection to each FN303 air reservoir “FILL” nipple.
Fill Control Valve Stick
The fill control valve controls the flow of pressure from the regulator into the FN303 air
reservoir. When the HP transfer hose quick connect is secured to the “FILL” nipple of
an air reservoir, the user pulls back on the valve to fill the air reservoir and equalize it to
the pressure indicated on the Fill Pressure Gauge. By releasing the valve, the air that
remains in the HP transfer hose is automatically purged. When the stop valve is closed,
the regulator is purged by pulling the fill control valve stick.
Fill Pressure Gauge
The fill pressure gauge indicates how much pressure is in the regulator and is labeled
“Fill Pressure”. When the air bank is in storage, the regulator should be purged, and the
fill pressure gauge should indicate 0 psi. When the filling of air reservoirs is required,
the stop valve should be opened, and the pressure regulator knob should be turned until
the fill pressure gauge indicates 3000 psi. As air reservoirs are filled, the fill pressure
will drop, and the pressure regulator knob should be adjusted until the fill pressure gauge
indicates 3000 psi.
0002 00-4
TM 9-1095-212-13&P
COMPONENT
0002 00
DESCRIPTION
Pressure Regulator Knob
The pressure regulator knob controls the amount of air pressure that is transferred from
the 4350 psi tanks into the 3000 psi regulator. It is labeled “Control HP / OUT”. Turning the knob counter-clockwise decreases the pressure in the regulator. Turning the knob
clockwise increases the pressure in the regulator. The knob should be slowly turned until
the Fill Pressure Gauge indicates that the regulator is at 3000 psi.
Safety Fixture Nipple
The safety fixture nipple holds and stores the knurled quick connect of the HP transfer
hose when the filling of air reservoirs is not taking place. It prevents the hose from damaging the fiberglass wrapped tanks.
Stop Valve
The red handled stop valve has two marked positions, CLOSED and OPEN. The stop
valve controls the flow of air pressure into the air bank regulator. The stop valve should
be in the CLOSED position except during air reservoir filling procedures.
Air Bank Pressure Gauge
The air bank pressure gauge indicates the current pressure level of the air bank tanks.
The gauge is labeled “Air Bank Pressure” and has a marking indicating the air bank
maximum air pressure of 4350 psi / 300 bar. When the stop valve is opened to permit the
flow of air pressure into the regulator, the air bank pressure gauge will indicate a
decrease in pressure.
Inlet Valve
The fill hose connection on the Reciprocating Compressor is connected to the Inlet
Valve. Once the compressor is started, the inlet valve must be opened to fill the Air
Bank. Once the Air Bank is filled, the inlet valve must be closed before disconnecting
the air compressor. The inlet valve is also the means of slowly purging the Air Bank
when required.

OPERATOR AND FIELD MAINTENANCE
FN303 LAUNCHER
(NSN 1095-01-526-7860)
THEORY OF OPERATION
GENERAL
The 1/4-turn air valve is placed in the “ON” position. Air travels from the 3000 psi reservoir, through the 800 psi regulator and
ON/OFF assembly, thereby pressurizing the valve assembly to 800 psi. This pressure is sealed with the bolt, and the bolt is
secured by the sear.
After one-third of the overall trigger travel, the ON/OFF plunger is moved to the “OFF” position. Air flow to the valve assembly is stopped. After two-thirds of overall trigger travel, the sear releases the bolt.
Once the bolt is released, air pressure forces the bolt forward and compresses the bolt spring.
The bolt travels forward, pushing the projectile into the bore. The bolt then continues forward into the barrel and forms a seal.
Air pressure of 800 psi enters the barrel and launches the projectile down range.
The bolt spring drives the bolt rearward cycling the launcher.

DESCRIPTION AND USE OF CONTROLS AND INDICATORS
PORTABLE AIR BANK
Table 1 contains controls and indicators for the Portable Air Bank.
Table 1. Controls and Indicators for Portable Air Bank .
KEY
CONTROL OR INDICATOR
FUNCTION
1
Air Bank Pressure Gauge
The air bank pressure gauge indicates the current pressure level of the air
bank cylinders. The gauge is labeled “Air Bank Pressure” and has a
marking indicating the air bank maximum air pressure of 4350 psi / 300
bar. When the stop valve is opened to permit the flow of air pressure into
the regulator, the air bank pressure gauge will indicate a decrease in pressure.
2
Inlet Valve
The inlet valve is used to purge the Air Bank, when required, or to fill the
Air Bank cylinders using a diesel air compressor (or equivalent breathable
SCUBA air compressor).
3
Safety Fixture Nipple
The high pressure HP transfer hose is used to transfer air from the air bank
cylinders to the air reservoirs used on the FN303 Launcher. The safety
fixture nipple holds and stores the knurled quick connect of the HP transfer hose when the filling of air reservoirs is not taking place. It prevents
the hose from damaging the fiberglass wrapped tanks.
4
Pressure Regulator Knob
The pressure regulator knob controls the amount of air pressure that is
transferred from the 4350 psi tanks into the 3000 psi regulator. It is
labeled “Control HP / OUT”. Turning the knob counter-clockwise
decreases the pressure in the regulator. Turning the knob clockwise
increases the pressure in the regulator. The knob should be slowly turned
until the Fill Pressure Gauge reads 3000 psi.

KEY
CONTROL OR INDICATOR
FUNCTION
5
Fill Control Valve
The fill control valve controls the flow of pressure from the regulator into
the FN303 air reservoir. When the HP transfer hose quick connect is
secured to the “FILL” nipple of an air reservoir, the user pulls back on the
fill control valve stick to fill the air reservoir and equalize it to the pressure indicated on the Fill Pressure Gauge. By releasing the valve, the air
that remains in the HP transfer hose is automatically purged. When the
stop valve is closed, the regulator is purged by pulling the fill control
valve stick.
6
Fill Pressure Gauge
The fill pressure gauge indicates how much pressure is in the regulator
and is labeled “Fill Pressure”. When the air bank is in storage, the regulator should be purged, and the fill pressure gauge should indicate 0 psi.
When the filling of air reservoirs is required, the stop valve should be
opened, and the pressure regulator knob should be turned until the fill
pressure gauge indicates 3000 psi. As air reservoirs are filled, the fill
pressure will drop and the pressure regulator knob should be adjusted
until the fill pressure gauge indicates 3000 psi.
7
Stop Valve
The red handled stop valve has two marked positions, CLOSED and
OPEN. The stop valve controls the flow of air pressure into the air bank
regulator. The stop valve should be in the CLOSED position except during air reservoir filling procedures.

LOAD MAGAZINE
The magazine of the FN303 Launcher can be loaded using the provided speed loader or by hand. The preferred method is to
use the speed loader. Both methods are provided below.
WARNING
Only FN303 projectiles are approved for use in the FN303 Launcher. Serious personnel injury or launcher damage may result from the use of Non-FN303 projectiles.
Do not use cracked, damaged, or dirty projectiles.
CAUTION
A full storage tube of projectiles contains 15 rounds. Load each magazine completely with all 15 projectiles. Do
not leave empty rotor pockets between projectiles. Empty rotor pockets will increase the chance of projectile
breakage in the magazine.
If a projectile ruptures or misfires in the magazine, the magazine must be properly cleaned prior to further use to
avoid malfunction.
The projectiles must be handled with care. Sharp blows or high forces may cause ruptures and the projectiles
will become unusable. Discard damaged projectiles IAW local Standard Operating Procedure (SOP).
1.
Load Magazine Using Speed Loader.
a.
Remove storage tube of projectiles from barrier bag.
b.
Visually inspect the storage tube to ensure that the flat end of each projectile is toward the bottom of the storage tube
and the projectile dome (rounded end) is toward the cap.

GENERAL
This work package contains instructions to adjust the front sight and zero in, prepare to engage target, misfire procedures, and
clearing the FN303 Launcher.
ADJUST FRONT SIGHT AND ZERO IN
WARNING
Always keep loaded launcher pointed downrange.
NOTE
The launcher must be sighted at 30 meters (32.8 yd) to maintain proper “ZERO” so aiming is more precise.
The gunner must maintain “ZERO” on the launcher at all times. Gunner should confirm the “ZERO” as often as
possible. When maintenance is performed on the launcher, changes in atmospheric conditions, humidity, and
temperature, and/or change in projectile lot numbers occur. “RE-ZERO” as soon as possible.
The gunner must “ZERO” the launcher while wearing the uniform most likely to be worn when firing the
launcher. The “ZERO” will change depending on the uniform worn due to placement of the launcher in the
shoulder pocket.
The front sight post has four “CLICK” positions for each 360 degrees of rotation. Each “CLICK” position can
be felt by the finger tips during a turn and can be visibly confirmed since the sight post shape is square. Rotation
of one click (90 degrees or 1/4 turn) moves the Mean Point of Impact (MPI) of the shot group approximately
1/2-inch (1.3 cm) to 5/8-inch (1.6 cm) along the vertical axis. There is no horizontal sight adjustment.

GENERAL
This work package contains instructions to operate the FN303 Launcher and Portable Air Bank under unusual conditions.
UNUSUAL ENVIROMENT/WEATHER
Operation in Desert Climates
In extreme hot temperatures, the pressure inside the FN303 Air Reservoir and the Portable Air Bank cylinders will rise. The
FN303 Air Reservoir has a burst disk that will safely release pressure if the air reservoir reaches 5000 psi. If this happens, dispose of the air reservoir IAW local SOP. The Portable Air Bank has a safety check valve that will automatically release pressure if the Air Bank pressure gauge exceeds 4350 psi or the fill pressure gauge exceeds 3050 psi.
In desert climates, the FN303 Launcher and Portable Air Bank are subject to damage from windblown sand and dust. Portable
Air Bank cylinders and all controls/indicators will require more frequent cleaning. Do not leave the FN303 uncovered when
not in use. Desert climate conditions will require more frequent launcher cleaning (refer to WP 0019 00) and magazine cleaning (refer to WP 0020 00). Desert climates can also cause the various O-rings inside the FN303 Launcher to become dry and
brittle. This may require more frequent lubrication and/or O-ring replacement. Refer to applicable maintenance work package.
When not in use, the Portable Air Bank should always be laid down on a flat surface with the lid closed and dog-ear style locks
in the locked position.
Operation in Arctic Climates
In extreme cold temperatures, the FN303 Launcher and Portable Air Bank pressure lines may freeze. Arctic climates can
cause the various O-rings inside the FN303 Launcher to become dry and brittle. This may require more frequent lubrication
and/or O-ring replacement. Refer to applicable maintenance work package.
Operation in Tropical Climates
Tropical climates cause condensation to form on the FN303 Launcher and Portable Air Bank. Wipe off moisture with a wiping
rag.
NUCLEAR, BIOLOGICAL, AND CHEMICAL (NBC) ENVIRONMENT
The FN303 Launcher and Portable Air Bank can be operated in MOPP IV.

GENERAL
This work package contains instructions to clean the FN303 Launcher barrel and components.
Operators are only authorized to assemble and/or disassemble the launcher and to replace the air reservoir.
CLEAN FN303 LAUNCHER BARREL
CAUTION
Do not use any gun cleaning solvents to clean the launcher. They will chemically degrade the pneumatic system
and will cause the launcher to permanently fail.
The barrel must be cleaned after each use. When the launcher is fired, some of the plastic residue from the projectile adheres to the inside of the barrel and can cause a malfunction.
Use only the provided cleaning brush and cleaning rod to clean the barrel. Do not use a metallic brush to clean
the barrel.
NOTE
Isopropyl alcohol is the recommended solvent for cleaning the barrel since it will dissolve the plastic residue of
projectiles. If isopropyl alcohol is not available, mild soap and water may be substituted.
1.
Screw cleaning brush to end of cleaning rod.
0019 00-1
TM 9-1095-212-13&P

CAUTION
To prevent damage to bolt assembly, do not allow cleaning brush to hit bolt assembly.
2.
Place a clean wiping rag into magazine well of launcher, ensuring it covers the bolt assembly.
CAUTION
Always keep the barrel pointed slightly down to prevent excess isopropyl alcohol from running into valve assembly. The alcohol will seep through to the O-rings and cause them to prematurely degrade.
3.
Hold launcher with barrel pointing 45 degrees downward.
4.
Dampen cleaning brush with isopropyl alcohol and slowly slide it through the barrel until it reaches the magazine well.
Slowly pull out cleaning brush. Keep cleaning brush damp with isopropyl alcohol and repeat the process ten times.
5.
Remove wiping rag from magazine well.
6.
Clear any debris from the cleaning brush and let it dry.
7.
Unscrew cleaning brush from cleaning rod.

GENERAL
This work package contains purging instructions for long term storage or shipment of the Portable Air Bank. The Air Bank
must be purged prior to long term storage or if transported by air.
WARNING
Handle Air Bank with extreme care during ground transport. Avoid dropping or sudden impact to prevent cylinders from rupturing and causing serious injury.
Air Bank is heavy (approx. 88 pounds) and requires a 2-person lift using the two spring-loaded lifting handles to
prevent personnel injury. Do not use transfer case handle to lift the Air Bank.
Operators must wear safety eyewear and hearing protection when purging the Air Bank to prevent injury and
hearing loss.
Air reservoirs and Air Bank cylinders will be shipped depressurized to less than 20 psi absolute (IAW DOT 49
CFR 173.115) when transported by air. A sudden change in altitude may cause pressurized Air Bank cylinders to
burst.

MAINTENANCE ALLOCATION CHART (MAC) INTRODUCTION
INTRODUCTION
The Army Maintenance System MAC
This introduction provides a general explanation of all maintenance and repair functions authorized at the two maintenance
levels under the Two-Level Maintenance System concept.
The MAC (WP 0040 00) designates overall authority and responsibility for the performance of maintenance functions on the
identified end item or component. The application of the maintenance functions to the end item or component shall be consistent with the capacities and capabilities of the designated maintenance levels, which are shown on the MAC in column (4) as:
Field - includes three subcolumns, Crew (C), Service (O), and Field (F) maintenance.
Sustainment - includes two subcolumns, Below Depot (H) and Depot (D) maintenance.
The tools and test equipment requirements (immediately following the MAC) list the tools and test equipment (both special
tools and common tool sets) required for each maintenance function as referenced from the MAC.
The remarks (immediately following the tools and test equipment requirements) contain supplemental instructions and explanatory notes for a particular maintenance function.
Maintenance Functions
Maintenance functions are limited to and defined as follows:
1. Inspect. To determine the serviceability of an item by comparing its physical, mechanical, and/or electrical characteristics
with established standards through examination (e.g., by sight, sound, or feel). This includes scheduled inspection and gagings and evaluation of cannon tubes.
2. Test. To verify serviceability by measuring the mechanical, pneumatic, hydraulic, or electrical characteristics of an item
and comparing those characteristics with prescribed standards on a scheduled basis, i.e., load testing of lift devices and hydrostatic testing of pressure hoses.
3. Service. Operations required periodically to keep an item in proper operating condition; e.g., to clean (includes decontaminate, when required), to preserve, to drain, to paint, or to replenish fuel, lubricants, chemical fluids, or gases. This
includes scheduled exercising and purging of recoil mechanisms.
4. Adjust. To maintain or regulate, within prescribed limits, by bringing into proper position, or by setting the operating
characteristics to specified parameters.
5.
Align. To adjust specified variable elements of an item to bring about optimum or desired performance.

INTRODUCTION - Continued
Maintenance Functions - Continued
6. Calibrate. To determine and cause corrections to be made or to be adjusted on instruments of test, measuring, and diagnostic equipment used in precision measurement. Consists of comparisons of two instruments, one of which is a certified standard of known accuracy, to detect and adjust any discrepancy in the accuracy of the instrument being compared.
7. Remove/Install. To remove and install the same item when required to perform service or other maintenance functions.
Install may be the act of emplacing, seating, or fixing into position a spare, repair part, or module (component or assembly) in
a manner to allow the proper functioning of an equipment or system.
8. Replace. To remove an unserviceable item and install a serviceable counterpart in its place. “Replace” is authorized by
the MAC and assigned maintenance level is shown as the third position code of the Source, Maintenance and Recoverability
(SMR) code.
9. Repair. The application of maintenance services, including fault location/troubleshooting, removal/installation, disassembly/assembly procedures, and maintenance actions to identify troubles and restore serviceability to an item by correcting specific damage, fault, malfunction, or failure in a part, subassembly, module (component or assembly), end item, or system.
NOTE
The following definitions are applicable to the “repair” maintenance function:
Services - Inspect, test, service, adjust, align, calibrate, and/or replace.
Fault location/troubleshooting - The process of investigating and detecting the cause of equipment malfunctioning; the act of isolating a fault within a system or Unit Under Test (UUT).
Disassembly/assembly - The step-by-step breakdown (taking apart) of a spare/functional group coded item to the
level of its least component, that is assigned as SMR code for the level of maintenance under consideration (i.e.,
identified as maintenance significant).
Actions - Welding, grinding, riveting, straightening, facing, machining, and/or resurfacing.
10. Overhaul. That maintenance effort (service/action) prescribed to restore an item to a completely serviceable/operational
condition as required by maintenance standards in appropriate technical publications. Overhaul is normally the highest degree
of maintenance performed by the Army. Overhaul does not normally return an item to like new condition.
11. Rebuild. Consists of those services/actions necessary for the restoration of unserviceable equipment to a like new condition in accordance with original manufacturing standards. Rebuild is the highest degree of materiel maintenance applied to
Army equipment. The rebuild operation includes the act of returning to zero those age measurements (e.g., hours/miles) considered in classifying Army equipment/components.
Explanation of Columns in the MAC
Column (1) - Group Number. Column (1) lists Functional Group Code (FGC) numbers, the purpose of which is to identify
maintenance significant components, assemblies, subassemblies, and modules with the Next Higher Assembly (NHA).
Column (2) - Component/Assembly. Column (2) contains the item names of components, assemblies, subassemblies, and
modules for which maintenance is authorized.
Column (3) - Maintenance Function. Column (3) lists the functions to be performed on the item listed in column (2). (For a

HOW TO LOCATE REPAIR PARTS
1.
When NSNs or P/Ns Are Not Known.
First. Using the table of contents, determine the assembly group to which the item belongs. This is necessary since figures are
prepared for assembly groups and subassembly groups, and lists are divided into the same groups.
Second. Find the figure covering the functional group or the subfunctional group to which the item belongs.
Third. Identify the item on the figure and note the number(s).
Fourth. Look in the repair parts list work packages for the figure and item numbers. The NSNs and part numbers are on the
same line as the associated item numbers.
2.
When NSN Is Known.
First. If you have the NSN, look in the STOCK NUMBER column of the NSN index work package. The NSN is arranged in
NIIN sequence. Note the figure and item number next to the NSN.
Second. Turn to the figure and locate the item number. Verify that the item is the one you are looking for.
3.
When P/N is Known.
First. If you have the P/N and not the NSN, look in the PART NUMBER column of the P/N index work package. Identify the
figure and item number.
Second. Look up the item on the figure in the applicable repair parts list work package.

This fine document...
Was brought to you by me:
Liberated Manuals -- free army and government manuals
Why do I do it? I am tired of sleazy CD-ROM sellers, who take publicly
available information, slap “watermarks” and other junk on it, and sell it.
Those masters of search engine manipulation make sure that their sites that
sell free information, come up first in search engines. They did not create it...
They did not even scan it... Why should they get your money? Why are not
letting you give those free manuals to your friends?
I am setting this document FREE. This document was made by the US
Government and is NOT protected by Copyright. Feel free to share,
republish, sell and so on.
I am not asking you for donations, fees or handouts. If you can, please
provide a link to liberatedmanuals.com, so that free manuals come up first in
search engines:
