Abstract:

An attempt is made to define the characteristics of a universally mobile repair parts issue point suitable for supporting division size field units. It is assumed that a Universal Mobility is characterized by ease of movement by highway, rail, water, and air b For uniformity with respect to terms of reference, the words issue point include related installations with generally similar functions, including the Direct Support Unit DSU, supply points and depots c Concepts for future warfare demand that logistics support activities in a combat zone have mobility equal to the tactical mobility of the supported units d Trends and changes in present Army organizational structure demand everincreasing mobility e Conventional port facilities will be used to a limited degree because such logistics concentrations would provide the enemy highly desirable atomic weapons targets.
