f. Rusted Surfaces.
All parts subject to rusting must be lightly oiled after
cleaning and prior to storage (Item 5, WP 0072 00).
Remove all evidence of corrosion.
The IRB bays will require touch-up of painted surfaces periodically. Touch-up
bays as required. Bays are Chemical Agent Resistant Coating (CARC) painted;
notify unit maintenance if entire bay requires painting.
LOADING AND MOVEMENT OF EQUIPMENT
a. Shipping Data Plate. A shipping data plate is mounted on the connecting
ends of each IRB-R and IRB-I. A silhouette of the side and end views of the bay is
depicted, and overall dimensions, lifting and tiedown points, and center of gravity
locations are given. (Refer to WP 0003 00.)
b. Slinging Provisions. IRB slinging provisions enable lifting of the IRB-R or
IRB-I for both normal lift and external lift by helicopter. To lift the bay, connect
IRB hoisting gear to the load receiving pins marked LIFT/TIEDOWN, located on
top of the bays outer pontons when in the folded position. When the BAP is used,
lift the bay and the BAP by connecting a suitable sling to the lifting eyes on the
BAP. When the bay is tied down with the BAP, the tiedowns are to be attached to
the bay and not the BAP. The load receiving pin lift points are located in
relationship to the bays center of gravity.
