Pagination or Media Count:
Service tests were made to determine the suitability of the Tent, Aviation Maintenance, Small, Adjustable, for Fixed-Wing Aircraft, T59-1 for Army use under arctic winter conditions. Because the test tent would not house the H- 34 tail rotor or provide sufficient work space for the engine, consideration should be given to development of a larger type organizational maintenance shelter. The aluminum ground anchor supplied with the test tent is not suitable for arctic use. Consideration must be given to development of a ground anchor that can be used in frozen ground. It is concluded that the tent is unsuitable for Army use under arctic winter conditions.
