Broken chute means no shooting!

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

Crewmen, just because you don't plan to fire your Bradley's M242 automatic gun doesn't mean it's OK to leave the ammo chutes disconnected.

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

If you leave those chutes dangling, they'll catch on cables when the gun is raised or lowered. That damages the chute locking levers, rips out cables and wiring and locks up the turret. You won't be shooting anything for a long time.

There are four ammo chutes, so make sure you connect all of them.

If an ammo chute is damaged and can't be hooked up, fix it with latch assembly repair kit, NSN 2590-01-268-7915.
