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