REPORTING EQUIPMENT IMPROVEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS (EIR)
If your M88A1 needs improvement, let us know. Send us an EIR. You, the user, are the only one who can tell us what you don't
like about your equipment. Let us know why you don't like the design. Put it on an SF 368 (Product Quality Deficiency Report).
Mail it to the address specified in DA PAM 738-750, Functional Users Manual for TAMMS, or as specified by the acquiring
activity. We will send you a reply.
CORROSION PREVENTION AND CONTROL (CPC)
CPC of Army materiel is a continuing concern. It is important that any corrosion problems with this item be reported so that the
problem can be corrected and improvements can be made to prevent the problem in future items.
While corrosion is typically associated with rusting of metals, it can also include deterioration of other materials, such as rubber
and plastic. Unusual cracking, softening, swelling, or breaking of these materials may be a corrosion problem.
If a corrosion problem is identified, it can be reported using SF 368, Product Quality Deficiency Report. Use of key words such
as "corrosion," "rust," "deterioration," or "cracking" will ensure that the information is identified as a CPC problem. The form
should be submitted to the address specified in DA PAM 738-750, Functional Users Manual for TAMMS.

For information and conditions under which destruction of the M88A1 should be undertaken to prevent enemy use and for other
