Property book pointers for improving unit EOH readiness: Part III.

IF YOUR UNIT'S EQUIPMENT READINESS REPORTING RATING IS A LITTLE LOWER THAT IT SHOULD BE, YOU MAY BE ABLE TO RESOLVE IT BY TRYING SOME OF THE TIPS IN THIS ARTICLE!

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

Recent Army studies found that certain line item numbers (LINs) can cause problems on property books and lower unit readiness ratings. In this third PS article in a mini-series about problem LINs, we alert property book officers (PBOs) and supply sergeants about vehicle LINs that can potentially drag down equipment-on-hand (EOH) readiness ratings.

In the following chart, these problem LINs are listed along with their nomenclatures and suggested solutions.

Note: Most of the equipment in this series of articles is common to more than one type of Army unit.
LIN Nomenclature Issue

A93374 M1117 The M1117 ASV (LIN A93374)
 armored is being fielded against an
 security MTOE requirement in military
 vehicle police units as a replacement
 (ASV) for certain M1114 up-armored
 HMMWVs (UAHs) (LIN T92446).
 Many units do not report the
 ASVs as valid in-lieu-of (ILO)
 substitutions for the UAHs
 they replace.

M31793 M2A2 ODS-E: The M2A2 ODS-E vehicle is
 Engineer- documented as an infantry
 Bradley fighting vehicle on MTOEs.

T07543 M1037 Shelter Current MTOEs document the
 carrier M1037 (LIN T07543) as the
 required S250 shelter carrier.
 All M1037s are being recapped
 to M1097R2s (LIN T07679).
 Many units fail to account for
 these shelter carriers as EOH.
 They are associated support
 items of equipment and
 systems/shelters on-hand under
 a different LIN.

T61562 M1038 troop Current MTOEs document the
 cargo carrier M1038 (LIN T61562) as the
 required troop/cargo vehicle.
 All M1038s are being recapped
 to M1097R2s (LIN T07679).
 Many units do not account for
 these vehicles as being on-hand
 under a different LIN.

LIN Commander directs

A93374 PBO to generate a
 lateral transfer (DA
 Form 3161) in PBUSE,
 to sub-LIN A93374
 under LIN T92446,
 and then this item
 will count as an ILO
 piece of EOH.
 Solution

M31793 Commander directs
 PBO to generate a
 lateral transfer (DA
 Form 3161) in PBUSE, to
 sub-LIN the engineer
 variant LIN (M31793)
 under the M2A2
 infantry (LIN F40375)
 variant, if the infantry
 variant is documented
 on the unit MTOE.

T07543 Commander directs
 PBO to generate a
 lateral transfer (DA
 Form 3161) in PBUSE,
 to sub-LIN T07679,
 T11588, T37588 and
 T61630 under LIN
 T07543.

T61562 Commander directs
 PBO to generate a
 lateral transfer (DA
 Form 3161) in PBUSE,
 to sub-LIN T07679,
 T11588, T37588,
 T56383, T61494 and
 T61630 under LIN
 T61562.
