071-054-0002 (SL1) - Restore an M136 Launcher to Carrying Configuration

Standards: Restored the launcher to a safe carrying configuration without damaging the equipment.

Conditions: Given an M136 launcher (AT4) prepared for firing and the requirement to restore the launcher to carrying configuration.

Standards: Restored the launcher to a safe carrying configuration without damaging the equipment.

Performance Steps

Note: The launcher is prepared for immediate firing but is not fired.

1.   If the gunner remains in the same position, he should-

(a)   Release the red safety catch (this step applies only if the firing sequence has proceeded to this point).

(b)   Return the cocking lever to the SAFE (uncocked) position by pushing it up and to the left, then pulling it rearward and fold the cocking lever down.

(c)   Keep the launcher pointed at the target area, and remove the launcher from his shoulder.

(d)   Replace the transport safety pin, with the launcher cradled in his left arm.

2.   If the gunner is to move to another position, in addition to the steps shown above, he must-

(a)   Return the rear sight to the battlesight setting of 200 meters, fold down the front and rear sights, and close the sight covers.

CAUTION: The rear sight may be damaged if it is not returned to a battlesight setting of 200 meters before closing the sight cover.

(b)   Fold the shoulder stop and snap it back into position.

Evaluation Preparation: 

Setup: At the test site, provide an expended AT4 or a tracer trainer. The AT4 or tracer trainer is in the ready to fire configuration.

Brief Soldier: Tell the soldier to assume a correct standing, ready-to-fire position with the launcher. Once he has assumed the firing position, tell him to return the launcher to the carrying configuration.
