TM 9-1425-450-12

WARNING

A lithium battery is used in this equipment, and is potentially hazardous if misused or tampered with. The battery contains pressurized sulfur dioxide gas which is toxic. The following precautions must be strictly observed to prevent possible injury to personnel or damage to equipment: Do not heat, incinerate, crush, puncture, disassemble, or otherwise abuse the battery in any way that may cause it to rupture. Do not short-circuit the battery, test for capacity, or attempt to recharge. Do not use any battery showing signs of damage, such as bulging, swelling, disfigurement, a brown liquid in the plastic wrap, or a swollen plastic wrap. Do not bypass internal fuse or replace with a fuse of a different rating. Do not store battery in unused equipment for more than 30 days. Do not dispose of lithium batteries with ordinary trash/refuse. Turn in batteries to your local Defense Reutilization and Marketing Office. Turn off the equipment immediately if you detect the battery compartment becoming unduly hot, hear battery venting (hissing sound), or smell irritating sulfur dioxide gas. Remove and dispose of the battery only after it is cool to touch. In the event of a fire near a lithium battery, rapid cooling of the battery is important. Flood the equipment with water or use a carbon dioxide extinguisher. Control of the equipment fire and cooling may prevent the battery from venting and potentially exposing lithium metal. In the event that lithium metal becomes involved in fire, the use of a graphite based Class D fire extinguisher is recommended, such as Lith-X or Met-L-X. Do not use a Halon type fire extinguisher on a lithium battery fire. Remove the battery when the voltage drops below 20 volts under load (or equipment does not operate properly) and replace with a new battery. If there is a safety incident, or if you believe a safety hazard exists, notify your local safety officer.

WARNING

Serious injury to personnel could result if crew members are in firing danger zones when missile is fired. Make sure that all personnel are clear of firing danger zones before doing missile loading procedure. Make sure crew is out of firing danger zones before pressing trigger. All crew members stay in their firing positions until missile hits target or explodes. Ear damage can occur when missile is fired. All personnel within 50 meters of launcher must wear ear plugs (V-51R or equal). For complete danger zone information and range safety guidelines, refer to AR 385-62.

WARNING

If forward slope at launch site is greater than 30 degrees (300), injury to personnel and damage to equipment may occur when missile is fired. If sideways slope is greater than 10 degrees (100), adequate tracking may be impossible.

WARNING

Do not fire missile over or in the direction of electrical wires. If command-link wires contact a live high voltage power line, injury to personnel and damage to equipment may occur.

WARNING

When launcher is mounted on a vehicle, position vehicle so front or rear of vehicle is in line with target. If launcher is loaded, keep missile pointed toward target area at all times. Observe firing angle limitations when firing over front or rear of vehicle (para 2-66 and 2-78). If missile fails to launch, hand off malfunctioned missile to either left or right side of vehicle so missile always points downrange.
