5.0-INCH AIRBORNE ROCKET ASSEMBLY
The following 5.0-inch airborne rocket assembly
procedures are used when you load the LAU-10
airborne rocket launcher. The LAU-10 airborne rocket
launcher is discussed in chapter 2 of this TRAMAN. If
the rocket launcher is being reused, it must be sent to
AIMD for electrical checkout prior to loading.
The 5.0-inch rocket components may be received
as follows: The rocket motors are preloaded in the
4-round LAU-10 launcher, and the fuze and warhead
are shipped in separate shipping containers, or all
rocket components are shipped in separate authorized
Unpacking Rocket Components
Rocket motors and other rocket components are
unpacked as discussed in the following steps:
Banding straps are under tension. You must
use care in cutting them to prevent injury.
Open wooden shipping crates by using hand
tools, such as shears or steel strap cutters. Cut
or untwist the securing wires from the metal
containers with shears or pliers. Remove the
Keep all containers in a horizontal position
while opening them. During the assembly
procedure, keep the rocket warheads and
motors in a horizontal position. This decreases
the possibility of accidents.
All retrograde items, such as metal boxes,
wooden boxes, spacers, and thread protectors,
preparation for assembly. These retrograde
items must be retained and disposed of
according to current directives.
