M2/M3-Series Bradley: When a Leak Isn’t a Leak


Crewmen,

Be sure to inspect your Bradley’s shock absorbers right away for leaks. Replace any shock absorber, NSN 2540-01-624-5291, that has a Class II or Class III leak.
        
If the shock has a Class I leak, keep a close eye on it, but don’t replace it unless the leak gets worse.
        
The -10 TM currently states that any leak requires replacing a shock absorber. The TM is being updated to state replacement is required only for shocks with Class II or III leaks. In the meantime, make a pen and ink change to the PMCS tables in your -10 TM.
        
If you find a shock installed on or after March 2018 with a Class II or III leak, file a Product Quality Deficiency Report (PQDR).
