INTRODUCTION

1-1 . General
For information pertaining to nomenclature, abbreviations, publications improvements, and other general
information, refer to TM 9-1425-381-10. For a listing
of forms, records, and reports pertaining to materiel
covered in this manual, and instructions for their use,
refer to TM 38-750.

1-2. Purpose
This manual is for the use of the HLT, VLT, and OST
operators during tactical operation of the PERSHING la
Field Artillery Missile System. It may be used in conj unction with TM 9-1425-381-10, which contains procedures in abbreviated tabular form.

1-3. Scope
The procedures in this manual are primarily for operation under usual conditions. For operation under
extreme environmental conditions, refer to TM
9-1425-381-10. TM 9-1425-381-10-2 through TM
9-1425-381-10-7 and TM 9-1425-381-10-9 contain
procedures to be performed by other personnel.

1-4. Use of Manual
Except for this chapter, paragraphs are not numbered sequentially. The method of numbering has
been selected so that the paragraph numbers in this
manual correspond to the paragraph numbers in TM
9-1425-.3-81-10. Thus, if tables in TM 9-1425-381-10
are being used, and details are required, it is only
necessary to note the paragraph number in the appropriate column of the table heading, and then refer to
the same paragraph number in this manual for details.

out of to Iera nee, notify supervisor.

NOTE. After monitoring period ends,
approximately 90 seconds will elapse
before LAY PLATF indicator starts flashing; periodically observe autoreflector
to determine that drift does not exceed
0.2 mil outside of either double vertical
reticle line during this time. (If RESET
