There’s an improved version of the emergency lifting strap, NSN 2590-01-278-5726, PN 13228E6020, for the M1-series tank’s mine clearing blade, NSN 2590-01-230-8862. The new version of the strap has been stitched together in a way that prevents slippage. Order the new strap with the same NSN and PN as the old one. The SMR and other FED LOG codes also remain the same.
