Equipment Is Not Ready/Available If Column.
This column lists conditions that make the equipment
unavailable for use because it is unable to perform its
mission, or because it would represent a safety hazard.
Do not accept or operate equipment with a condition in
the "Equipment is Not Ready/Available If" column.
The terms ready/available and mission
capable refer to the same status:
Equipment is on hand and is able to
perform its combat mission. Refer to
DA Pam 738-750.
Reporting Deficiencies. If any problem with the
equipment is discovered during PMCS or while it is
being operated that cannot be corrected at the
operator/crew maintenance level, it must be reported.
Refer to DA Pam 738-750 and report the deficiency
using the proper forms.
Special Instructions. Preventive maintenance is
not limited to performing the checks and services listed
in the PMCS table.
