AGSE: New Tool Kit Available for Aircraft Armament Repairers

Aircraft armament mechanics,

Having the right tool is essential for good PM. MWO 1-1500-50-5 makes that possible by modernizing the three-box legacy Individual Aircraft Armament Repairmen Tool Set (IAARTS) and converting it into a new, one-box Aircraft Armament Repairer Tool Kit (AARTK), NSN 5180-01-667-9530.

The AARTK is part of the Common Aviation Tool System and replaces IAARTS NSNs 5180-01-578-3697, 5180-01-433-4469 and 5180-01-516-0223. The AARTK is for Soldiers in MOS 15Y, AH-64 Armament, Electrical and Avionic Systems Repairers. This enhanced modernized tool system is designed to maintain attack helicopter armament subsystems.

The tool kit itself measures 24x18x15 inches. It weighs in at a hefty 98 pounds and is a three-person lift. It comes with a telescoping handle and includes foam cutouts for the tools.
