QUESTION

Jana: DA PAM 700-16, para. 12-15a, states DA Form 4949 is used on all ammo, missiles and explosive items along with applicable MFDRs.

Is a DA Form 4949 the only form required for expenditure of operational load items?  Or do I also need to complete a DA Form 5692-R when consuming items such as AT-4s and C-4, which are CIIC I, II for operational load purposes?

Additionally, appendix F, para. F-4c, states items in Table F-2 with a "T" will require additional documentation. So which forms do I need to complete when expending CIIC I and II items for operational load purposes?

QUESTION

Question about Asset Status Report Visibility (one response)

Kittrell: Is there anywhere in writing where it states who I am allowed to give my asset status report to or is there anywhere that states that I do not have to give my asset status report to another individual or unit besides my commander? I would like to have a regulation to back me up because most will challenge myself or anyone in an AO position that decides not to reveal that information.

QUESTIONS

Question about Asset Status Report Visibility

Kittrell: Many times in my career I have faced a situation where unit's want to know what I have on hand for CL V. I will typically tell that individual that my asset status report is sensitive in nature and that I am not allowed to give that information out unless it is to give my commander situational awareness of what is available.

Is there anywhere in writing where it states who I am allowed to give my asset status report to or is there anywhere that states that I do not have to give my asset status report to another individual or unit besides my commander? I would like to have a regulation to back me up because most will challenge myself or anyone in an AO position that decides not to reveal that information.

 

Question about AIN 014-19 and Full Range Practice Cartridges (FRPC) (one response)

Robert: IAW with AIN 014-19, recovery of the FRPC is not designed or intended to be recovered. The AIN states that expended the Full Range Practice (FRP) cartridges will be considered to be UXO's.

So, if a Mortar unit fires 50, 60mm FRPCs, will EOD have to blow each mortar (50) fired into the temporary impact area? Click here to join discussion.

Question about AIN 014-19 and Full Range Practice Cartridges (FRPC)

Robert: IAW with AIN 014-19, recovery of the FRPC is not designed or intended to be recovered. The question is what happens when these rounds are fired into a temporary impact area?

Per DA PAM 385-63, those portions of temporary and dedicated impact areas authorized for training or other authorized purposes will be surface cleared of UXO before access is permitted.

The AIN states that expended the Full Range Practice (FRP) cartridges will be considered to be UXO's.

So, if a Mortar unit fires 50, 60mm FRPCs, will EOD have to blow each mortar (50) fired into the temporary impact area?
