PROJECTILE RACK OPERATION (continued)
Remove projectiles (one at a time) from unlocked rack section. Use conveyor to move projectiles from vehicle.
As each rack section is unloaded, lock rack section by pushing handles out and down. Position both rack handles into
Repeat steps 2 through 5 to unload additional projectiles.
Moving Projectile Rack Assemblies
Before moving rack assemblies, park vehicle on level ground. If vehicle Is not level, racks may tip,
causing injury or damage.
If both rack assemblies are to be moved, move right rack assembly first. After left rack assembly is
moved, leave hoisting hook attached; this support is necessary because the rack assemblies tend to tip
forward when both rack assemblies are moved back.
This operation requires two persons - one on top of vehicle and one Inside crew compartment.
Handle projectiles carefully. Contact between projectiles and fire extinguisher could cause extinguisher
to discharge, causing personal injury or damage to the vehicle.
For some preventative maintenance checks and services, it will be necessary to gain access to area
between projectile rack assemblies and front wall.
1. Remove all projectiles from rack assembly to be moved. Also, remove stowed items from stowage box at top of rack
assembly. If moving right projectile rack assembly, stow right front double seat (p. 2-117).
