How many tire chains?Dear Half-Mast,
The CAUTION on Page 2-385 of TM 9-2320-279-10-1 (Nov 86 w/ Ch 10) says when using tire chains on your HEMTT HEMTT Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck , you must; put; chains on all four rear wheels.
However, Page 9 of TM 9-2320-279-10-HR only authorizes one set; of tire chains, NSN NSN National Stock Number
NSN Nokia Siemens Networks
NSN National Storytelling Network
NSN NATO Stock Number
NSN New Substances Notification (CEPA)
NSN National Student Number (NZ)
NSN Never Say Never 2540-01-152-7813, For each HEMTT. Since the NSN brings only two chains, we're left; two chains short. What gives?
Dear CW2 M.P.C.,
You're right, Sir. A total of four tire chains are needed for each HEMTT.
