REGULARS BY GOD! M-1114 Exterior Loads Vehicle Rear: Litter (Behind Antenna Mounts) Vehicle Tow Bar Warning and Traffic Control Signs used during TCP Operation (stored on inside of trunk hood 4I 1-22 IN HQ 6 SLING AND TIE DOWN Tow Strap Girth-hitched to rear sling point Excess strap S-folded and secured with single loop of break-cord (single strand of 550-cord gut) Looped-end of tow strap secured to right rear antenna mount with single strand of break cord Looped end must protrude past side of vehicle Reflective Tape Horizontal; Coalition vehicle marking Reflective Tape Horizontal; Coalition vehicle marking Not shown in Diagram: Warning sign – “Warning, stay back 50 meters” – attach to spare tire with 550-cord
REGULARS BY GOD! M-1114 Exterior Loads Vehicle Front: SLING AND TIE DOWN 4I 1-22 IN HQ 6 Reflective Tape Horizontal; Coalition vehicle marking Reflective Tape Horizontal; Coalition vehicle marking IR Strobe Light Velcro to front of gunner’s shield Mark 19 Ammo Cradle (both sides of turret) Tow strap routed to driver’s mirror Tow Strap Girth-hitched to front sling point Tow strap secured with single loop of break-cord (single strand of 550-cord gut) Two rolls of concertina wire secured to hood of vehicle Iraqi “STOP” sign bolted to front of gunner’s shield using existing bolts Deep water fording snorkel removed from air intake to increase TC visibility
REGULARS BY GOD! M-1114 Exterior Loads Close-up, Left Front: Concertina secured to hood with single-strand of 550-cord End-of-Line-Bowline knot on end of 550- cord looped over hood latch secures concertina wire to hood of vehicle Small Clevis secured to driver’s mirror with single loop of break-cord (single strand of 550-cord gut) Small Clevis attached to end of Tow strap Tow strap routed to front of vehicle To remove concertina wire, unlatch hood latch and slip off 550-cord loop; do not untie knot
REGULARS BY GOD! M-1114 Antenna Rigging Vehicle Rear: 4I 1-22 IN HQ 6 SLING AND TIE DOWN Aerials tied together with a single strand of 550-cord Single strand of 550- cord tied to horizontal line, secured to back deck of vehicle; cord must not prohibit turret from rotating Iraqi urban areas are characterized by many low hanging wires and cables running from building to building. In order to achieve maximum range for communications, leave aerial antennas erect. When the need arises to travel under low hanging wires, the TC tells the gunner, “WIRES”; the gunner reaches back and grabs the single lowering cord and pulls antennas down to negotiate any low hanging wires or cables; release when wires are passed. Gunner pulls the lowering cord to negotiate low hanging wires
REGULARS BY GOD! Creating Emergency Access to a Combat-Locked M-1114: Used to gain emergency access to crew members inside a vehicle who are unable to disengage the combat locks 550-cord loop girth- hitched to window locking bar Loop extends over top of door and hangs outside while door is closed and locked INTERIOR VIEW Create a pull-handle using 100mph tape To open combat-locked doors, pull the 550-cord handle (unlocks window locking bar) while pushing down on window glass with palm of hand When window glass is lowered, rescuer will be able to reach inside vehicle to disengage combat locks EXTERIOR VIEW
REGULARS BY GOD! M-1114 Rigging a Medical Attendant Seat: Allows TC seat to fold down; used to create easier access for medical attendant to patient when transporting a patient inside back seat(s) Remove top bolts from both sides of TC’s seat Use a smaller bolt or pin to secure seat in upright position when not being used as a medical attendant seat To create the medical attendant’s seat, remove smaller bolt or pin from top bolt hole and fold seat down. Medical attendant now has easier access to patient in back seat(s). Medical attendant rides in vehicle on top of folded down seat.
REGULARS BY GOD! Transporting Casualties with the M-1114 : Technique 1: Transporting Litter Patient Inside Vehicle Most secure method; used when transporting longer distances; can be time-consuming to load patient inside vehicle. Seat folded down for medical attendant Patient positioned so that injury site is closest to medical attendant Patient secured to litter with litter straps or heavy engineer tape Some interior cargo may need to be removed in order to place litter inside vehicle Older litters with shortened handles will fit completely inside rear of the M-1114
REGULARS BY GOD! Transporting Casualties with the M-1114 : Technique 2: Transporting Litter Patient Outside Vehicle Less secure method; used when transporting shorter distances; less time consuming than transporting patient inside vehicle Remove concertina wire from front of vehicle Litter stirrups secured to hood of vehicle with cord or rope Warning: Drive slowly when using this method! Used when transporting a patient a short distance – such as from point of injury to Medevac LZ If possible, have a soldier walk beside each side of the vehicle holding litter handles steady
REGULARS BY GOD! Transporting Casualties with the M-1114 : Technique 3: Transporting Multiple Litter Patients Outside Vehicle Used when necessary to transport multiple patients for short distances Litter stirrups secured to hood of vehicle with cord or rope Warning: Drive slowly when using this method! Used when transporting multiple patients a short distance – such as from point of injury to Medevac LZ Caution: Keep turret pointed straight ahead in order to place patients on top of vehicle Use strap or rope to tie litter stirrups from one litter to the next; front and back
REGULARS BY GOD! Towing a Disabled M-1114 Forward Using Rigged Tow Straps: Disabled Vehicle Rescue Vehicle Rescue vehicle positions vehicle rear next to disabled vehicle’s driver window and mirror Disabled vehicle’s driver lowers window; attaches tow straps together using small clevis When vehicles are connected, rescue vehicle pulls forward slowly until all break-cords snap; tows disabled vehicle out of kill zone This technique is used to quickly tow a disabled vehicle out of a kill zone; designed to tow a vehicle for a short distance until tow bar can be installed.
REGULARS BY GOD! Towing a Disabled M-1114 Rearward Using Rigged Tow Straps: Disabled Vehicle Rescue Vehicle Rescue vehicle positions driver window and mirror near disabled vehicle’s rear Rescue vehicle’s driver lowers window; attaches tow straps together using small clevis When vehicles are connected, rescue vehicle pulls backward slowly until all break-cords snap; tows disabled vehicle out of kill zone until tow bar can be attached This technique is used to quickly tow a disabled vehicle backwards out of a kill zone; used on constricting roads or when pulling a vehicle forward is not possible.
