Abstract : The U.S. Army Defense Ammunition Center and School (USADACS) was tasked by USADACS, Transportation Engineering Division (SMCAC-DET), to test various Combat Configured Loads (CCLs) on the Palletized Loading System (PLS) truck/trailer. The test loads were made up of weighted inert materiel and consisted of artillery, propellant charges, and Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS) pods. The proposed ammunition tie down methods were adequate in restraining all loads when subjected to standard road transportation tests.
