Professionally converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction, this Army Field Manual is the Army's doctrine for battlefield and garrison recovery operations. This publication applies to the Regular Army, the Army National Guard/Army National Guard of the United States, and the United States Army Reserve unless otherwise stated. It builds on the collective knowledge and experience gained through recent operations, numerous exercises, and the deliberate process of informed reasoning. This publication is rooted in time-tested principles and fundamentals, while accommodating new technologies and evolving responses to the diverse threats to national security. Aircraft recovery missions include the assessment, repair, and retrieval, if possible, of aircraft forced down due to component malfunction, accident, or combat-related damage that prevents the continued safe flight or operation of the aircraft. The aircraft recovery mission is complete upon the return of all personnel and either the return of the aircraft through self-recovery or dedicated recovery utilizing aerial or surface recovery methods and techniques, or the selective cannibalization and destruction or abandonment of the aircraft.
