MAINTENANCE FORMS AND RECORDS
Every mission begins and ends with paperwork. There isnt much of it, but you have to keep it up. The forms and records you
fill out have many uses. They are a permanent record of the services, repairs, and changes made to your carrier. They are
reports to unit maintenance and to your track commander. They are checklists that tell you whether those faults have been
fixed. For information on forms and records, see DA PAM 738-750.
WARNINGS AND CAUTIONS
Before you begin operating your carrier, do the BEFORE (B) Preventive Maintenance Checks and Services (PMCS). Pay
attention to all WARNINGS and CAUTIONS. A WARNING alerts you to danger. It means you or a crew member can be
injured if the WARNING is not followed. A CAUTION means the carrier can become damaged if the CAUTION is not
followed. It is very important to keep in mind all WARNINGS and CAUTIONS when you perform this PMCS.
