The quarterly Equipment Improvement Report and Maintenance Digest (EIR MD), TB 43-0001-62 series,
contains valuable field information on equipment covered in this manual. Information in the TB 43-0001-62
series is compiled from some of the Equipment Improvement Reports that have been prepared on equipment
covered in this manual. Many of these articles result from comments, suggestions, and improvement
recommendations that were submitted to the EIR program. The TB 43-0001-62 series contains information
on equipment improvements, minor alterations, proposed Modification of Work Orders (MWOs), warranties
(if applicable), actions taken on recommendation submitted on the DA Form 2028 (Recommended Changes
and Blank Forms), and advance information on proposed changes that may affect this manual. Significant
maintenance articles, including minor alterations and field-fixes, are republished in the Equipment
Improvement Report and Maintenance Summary (EIR MS) for TACOM Equipment (TM 43-0143). Refer to
the TB 43-0001-62 series and TM 43-0143 periodically for the most current and authoritative information on

the latest changes to this manual. Also refer to DA PAM 310-1, Consolidated Index of Army Publications and
Blank Forms, and Appendix A, References, of this manual.
