Previous: 7-75: Sustainment Maintenance

7-76. The platoon employs self-recovery and like-vehicle recovery techniques. If the unit is unable to perform the recovery mission, it reports the need for recovery to the company. A recovery team is dispatched to perform recovery operations at the breakdown site or from an intermediate coordinated location within the area of operation. The recovery section accomplishes its mission by performing damage assessment and initial damage classification and recovering battle damaged equipment.
