1.3. 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 the materials may be a corrosion problem.
If a corrosion problem is identified, it can be reported using Standard Form 368, Product Quality Deficiency Report. Use
of key words such as "rust", "deterioration", "corrosion" or "cracking" will insure that the information is identified as a CPC
problem. The form should be submitted to the address specified in DA Pam 738-750.
1.4. DESTRUCTION OF ARMY MATERIEL TO PREVENT ENEMY USE.
Submergence of equipment and repair parts underwater (lakes, ponds, bogs, swamps, etc.) or by concealment by hiding
materiel in caves or, preferably by burial, can be used effectively.
Dispersal. Widely dispersed scattering of materiel, preferably into heavy underbrush, can serve as a denial or delaying
measure. In the event the area is recaptured, effort should be made to recoup concealed items.
TM 750-244-3, Procedure for Destruction of Equipment to Prevent Enemy Use, contains further instructions for
destruction of equipment to prevent enemy use.
1.5. REPORTING EQUIPMENT IMPROVEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS (EIR).
If your WQAS-PM needs improvement, let us know. Send us an EIR. You, the user, are the only one who can tell us
what you don't like about your equipment. Let us know why you don't like the design or performance. Put it on an SF
368 (Product Quality Deficiency Report). Mail it to us at: Commander, U.S. Army Aviation and Troop Command,
ATTN: AMSAT-I-MP, 4300 Goodfellow Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63120-1798. We will send you a reply.
