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 the information is identified as a CPC problem.
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 that 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.
