SPECIFIC PMCS PROCEDURES - Continued
The term mission capable refers to equipment being on hand and able to perform its
combat mission, refer to AR 700-138, Army Logistics Readiness and Sustainability.
Not Fully Mission Capable If: Information in this column tells you what faults will keep the
equipment from being capable of performing its mission. If PMCS reveals faults listed in this
column, do not operate the equipment. Follow standard operating procedures for maintaining the
equipment or reporting equipment failures.
It is necessary for you to know how fluid leakage affects the status of the semitrailer. Following are types/classes
of leakage you need to know to be able to determine the status of the semitrailer. Learn these leakage definitions
and remember - when in doubt, notify your Supervisor. Equipment operation is allowed with minor leakage
(Class I or II). Consideration must be given to fluid capacity in the item/system being checked/inspected. When in
doubt, notify your Supervisor.
When operating with Class I or II leaks, continue to check fluid levels as required in the PMCS.
Class III: leaks should be reported immediately to your Supervisor.
Class I: Seepage of fluid (as indicated by wetness or discoloration) not great enough to form drops.
Class II: Leakage of fluid great enough to form drops, but not enough to cause drops to drip from item
Class III: Leakage of fluid great enough to form drops that fall from item being checked/inspected.
Equipment operation is allowed with minor (Class I or II) leakage. Fluid levels in an item/system affected with
such leakage must be checked more frequently than required in PMCS. When in doubt, notify your Supervisor.
Report Class III leaks IMMEDIATELY to your Supervisor or Field Maintenance.
