The A/F32K-10 small bomb assembly platform
stand (fig. 9-11) consists of two table assemblies, a
center insert, and three tray assemblies. Rollers are
permanently affixed to the tables. Folding legs located
at both ends of each table assembly provides support,
which are unfolded and pinned into position. An insert
is placed in the gap between the tables and secured with
four bolts. There are also three tray assemblies with
rollers on top. When placed on the main stand
assembly, the trays ride on the permanent rollers,
allowing them to be pushed along the length of the
stand. The top-mounted rollers actually contact the skin
of the weapon and support its weight, permitting a
360-degree rotation of any weapon and allowing access
to screws and other parts.
The A/F32K-10 is primarily designed for use on
amphibious assault ships (LPH/LHA/LHD). It is used
in a predesignated magazine or bomb assembly area in
conjunction with an overhead rail and hoist system for
assembling bombs of various weights and sizes.
