AH-64: Avoid the Green Tag Snag

Mechanics,

When turning in an unserviceable component, it’s important you fill out the green tag DD Form 1577-2, Unserviceable (Reparable) Tag-Materiel, with the correct information.

That hasn’t been the case lately for the Apache’s fire control radar (FCR).  And that documentation is critical for producing accurate failure reporting, analysis and corrective action system (FRACAS) for the FRC program.

That green tag info gives the manufacturer the data needed to accurately diagnose faults and repair the FCR. It also allows them to discern trends by individual aircraft, aircraft type and failure modes. That lowers operational and sustainment costs for the component.

Not sure how to fill out the green tag? Follow this example:
