6. When supervising soldiers removing a SMFT tank from its trailer and
repacking it for return to CONUS, use the following procedures:
a. To repack the tank, have your soldiers begin by removing the
pressure gauge. Then disconnect and remove the hold-down kit ratchets, and
hang the loose ends of the belts over the sides of the trailer. Next they
fold the tank lengthwise, almost in half, by laying the top fold of the tank
down approximately 1 foot shorter than the bottom fold. The ends will then
be equal when the tank is rolled. Then they roll the tank. It is necessary
the first roll be circular and tight, otherwise the tank will be hard to
roll and make a large package.
After the first few uses, the tank will
become more flexible and easier to roll and unroll.
b. Slip the sling around and under the tank so it can be picked up
placed back into its shipping box.
The slings are located in
semitrailer stowage compartment.
Have your soldiers roll and store
belts, pressure gauge, ratchets, bolts, and plates in the shipping box.
