CORROSION PREVENTION AND CONTROL (CPC)
Corrosion Prevention and Control (CPC) of Army materiel is a continuing concern. It is important that
any corrosion problems with this item be reported so that the problem can be corrected and
improvements can be made to prevent the problem in future items.
While corrosion is typically associated with rusting of metals, it can also include deterioration of other
materials, such as rubber and plastic. Unusual cracking, softening, swelling, or breaking of these
materials may be a corrosion problem.
If a corrosion problem is identified, it can be reported using SF 368, PQDR. Use of keywords such as
"corrosion, "rust," "deterioration," or "cracking" will ensure that the information is identified as a CPC
The form should be submitted to the address specified in DA PAM 738-750, Functional Users Manual
for The Army Maintenance Management System (TAMMS).
DESTRUCTION OF ARMY MATERIEL TO PREVENT ENEMY USE
Objective. Methods of destruction used to inflict damage on air delivery equipment should make it
impossible to restore equipment to a usable-condition in a combat zone, by either repair or
Authority. Destruction of air delivery equipment, which is in imminent danger of capture by an enemy,
is a command decision that must be made by a battalion or higher commander, or the equivalent.
Implementation plan. All units that possess air delivery equipment should have a plan for the
implementation of destruction procedures.
Training. All personnel who use or perform such functions as rigging, packing, maintenance, or
storage of air delivery equipment, should receive thorough training on air delivery equipment destruction
procedures and methods. The destruction methods demonstrated during training should be simulated.
Upon completion of training, all applicable personnel should be thoroughly familiar with air delivery
equipment destruction methods and be capable of performing destruction without immediate reference
to any publication.
