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, 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 2540-01-152-7813, For each HEMTT. Since the NSN brings only two chains, we're left; two chains short. What gives?

CW2 M.P.C.

Dear CW2 M.P.C.,

You're right, Sir. A total of four tire chains are needed for each HEMTT.

TACOM is currently changing the hand receipt to reflect this. The unit of issue will be changed from SE (set) to PR (pair) and the QTY AUTH column will be changed from 1 to 2. That authorizes the four tire chains

Make a note until the hand receipt is updated.
