Apache: Turn-ins Reduce Repair Parts Shortage

AMCOM repair programs need your help!  When Apache parts are unserviceable, it’s crucial that units turn them in for repair in a timely manner.  The supply system can only meet the demand for parts when it has parts to repair and send back out to users.

Here’s a list of needed parts:
Item NSN Item Manager
Main rotor head (expedite) 1615-01-512-0889 BJA40

If you have these parts and they’re unserviceable, turn them in now, including their containers. Holding on to unserviceable Apache components means others can’t get what they need when they need it, so don’t stockpile them.   

Instead, turn in all the unserviceable parts to CCAD for repair at:
Plant 7015/RIC B52
Corpus Christi Army Depot
Corpus Christi, TX 78419

If you have questions about any of the items listed in the table above, contact the item manager through the i2Log website:
