The engineer troops in Vietnam have had to cope with a number of problems caused by the rapid buildup of troops, the complexity and wide variety of equipment in use, and the resulting high level of skill required of operator and maintenance personnel. This paper describes some of the equipment and procedures developed by USAEDRL for ease of assembly and maintenance, including the sectionalizing of vehicles. The author also outlines maintenance problems encountered in the field, particularly on hydraulic systems and the overall problems of quality control.
