SPECIAL NOTES: 1. AS OF JUNE 1993, THE HISTORY OF THE GUARDRAIL FAMILY IS AS FOLLOWS: THE BASE ITEM IN ALL AERIAL EXPLOITATION BATTALIONS IS GUARDRAIL V (GRV). GRV WAS FIELDED TO USAREUR AND 15TH MI BN, FT HOOD. IT WAS REPLACED BY IGRV, AN/USD-9A, AT BOTH LOCATIONS. THE IGRV IN USAREUR WAS THEN REPLACED BY THE GUARDRAIL COMMON SENSOR SYSTEM 4 (GRCS-4), WHILE THE IGRV IN FT HOOD IS SCHEDULED TO BE REPLACED BY THE GUARDRAIL COMMON SENSOR SYSTEM 2 (GRCS-2) IN 1997. 2. IGRV CONSIST OF THE FOLLOWING LINS: Z04118 (M021AA), Z15849 (M021AB), Z15917 (M021AC), Z28126 (M021MA), Z40903 (M021MB), Z41406 (M021MC), Z50693 (M021AD), Z76231 (M021AE), Z77097 (M021AF), Z77165 (M021AG), Z35208 (M021AH). 3.

THE 33R, AERIAL SENSOR REPAIRER, REQUIREMENTS AS DEPICTED IN TOE 34418C200 AND THIS BOIP ARE DIRECTLY COMMENSURATE WITH PERSONNEL AUTHORIZATIONS CURRENTLY DOCUMENTED IN IGRV UNITS. 6. THE RC-12D AIRCRAFT IN WHICH THIS AIRBORNE RELAY FACILITY (ARF) IS MOUNTED, IS CARRIED AS ASIOE ON THE FEEDER DATA/QQPRI. HOWEVER, A 1983 MESSAGE STATED THAT THE RC-12D AIRCRAFT (Z04549) WOULD BE INCLUDED IN THE TOE, BUT WOULD NOT HAVE ITS OWN BOIP. THEREFORE, THE AIRCRAFT IS ADDED TO THE TOE (34418L200 AND 34418L400) WITH THIS BOIP EVEN THOUGH IT HAS A DEVELOPMENTAL LIN.
