Abstract : This research product presents M60A3 Procedure Guides which are designed to aid experienced tank crewmen and gunners to remember and perform pre- and post- operation procedures for the M60A3 battle tank. One of the notable innovations of the procedures is the abbreviated algorithmic format for presenting task information. Also, separate booklets were developed for tank commander and gunner tasks. And both booklets were designed to be reduced and inserted into plastic binders. These innovations were intended to make the Procedure Guides easy to use and rugged enough to withstand the rigors of the tank environment.
