Standard. You must score at least 75 on the end-of-subcourse examination that covers this lesson
and lessons 1 and 3 (answer 30 of the 40 questions correctly).
SELECTING OUTLOADING DRAWINGS
To select outloading drawings, you must know what ammunition is to be loaded and the type of
transportation that is to be used to ship the ammunition. Your first step in selecting the correct
outloading drawing for your ammunition and transportation is to consult the table of contents of DA
Pamphlet 75-5, List of Storage and Outloading Drawings for Ammunition (see figure 2-1). Let's say you
are shipping Lance missiles by truck. The entry for Lance, under Guided Missile and Rocket Systems,
directs you to page 2-34 of the pamphlet. On page 2-34 (see figure 2-2), locate the proper assemblage
for the Lance missile. Then look to the right in the Motor Transportation column under Tactical to find
the drawing number for that assemblage-5747 GM 17LC1.
Once you know the number of the outloading drawing you need, go to the outloading drawing file and
find the drawing. It should be filed numerically. The outloading drawing number is always in the lower
right-hand corner of the title sheet of the outloading drawing (see figure 2-3).
