PURPOSE AND SCOPE
This chapter is for your use in maintaing the M1059 Smoke Generator Carrier. If
you do not find an item here, look in Chapters 1 through 3 covering the M113A2
Carrier. This chapter must be used with Chapters 1,2 and 3 to get the full picture
on the M1059. For more information and operating procedures under usual and
unusual conditions, refer to TM 3-1040-279-12&P.
The M1059 is built from the same plans as the M113A2 except the M1059 has the
M157 smoke generator system mounted. The M157 is a remote controlled unit
which uses a pulse jet engine and fog oil to produce smoke. The system consists of
six major assemblies: (1) two M54 smoke generator assemblies, (2) a control panel
assembly, (3) a fog oil pump/tank assembly, (4) an air compressor assembly, and
(5) two 5-gallon fuel cans with special plugs.
