1.2 VERIFICATION OF TECHNICAL DATA
This Manual's procedures have been validated by field installation of the Armor Kit on HEMTT
vehicles accomplished in December of 2004.
1.3 CRATING / UNCRATING
Each Kit will be contained within approved shipping containers. These containers will provide
the Kit's armor panels with protection and security when they are not installed on the HEMTT.
Because of the weight of the specific armor panels within the Kit, care should be taken during
removal of the panels from the containers or replacement of the panels back into the containers.
Two personnel and mechanical aids (hoist, forklift, etc.) are required during the removal /
installation of the armor panels.
1.4 SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS
The weights of the majority of the components within the Kit are heavier than allowable for one
or two personnel, and the metal armor components may have sharp edges. Appropriate lifting
and safety equipment, manpower, and safety precautions shall be utilized to ensure that no
injuries are incurred during the installation or removal of the armor panels onto the HEMTT or
during the removal or replacement of the panels into the shipping containers. Warnings,
Cautions, and Notes are provided in these Installation Instructions, as appropriate, to advise the
maintenance personnel of information necessary for the installation or removal of Kit
components (see Figures 1-1 and 1-2).
1.5 WARNINGS, CAUTIONS, AND NOTES
Warnings, Cautions, and Notes are included in these Installation Instructions to provide short,
concise statements that emphasize critical or important information. Warnings, Cautions, and
Notes precede the text that they affect, but follow the paragraph headings to which they apply.
Warnings precede Cautions, and Cautions, in turn, precede Notes. A format example and an
explanation of the function of each are provided below.
