The second barricade configuration (fig. 3-38) is
the E-2/C-2 barricade. A 40 foot opening in the center
of the webbing is designed so that props of the E-2/C-2
aircraft can pass through it with minimal damage to
aircraft during arrestment. The E-2/C-2 barricade
installation is comprised of an uncoated, double
webbing assembly which is factory preassembled,
boxed and shipped ready to rig.
There are 12 portable deck ramps. They should be
numbered 1 through 12 from port to starboard. The
numbering should be large enough to facilitate easy

The purpose of the deck ramps is to secure the

wheel to ride up and into the barricade assembly. This
protects the lower load straps and also prevents the
aircraft from nosing under them during a barricade
