HEMTT, PLS: The New Plan is NCOMP

Photo by Maj. Thomas Piernicky
Warfighters, there’s a new plan for HEMTT and PLS vehicles that aren’t used very often. The Optimized Maintenance Non-Combat Operations Maintenance Plan (NCOMP) will help reduce service workload for idle vehicles.

The plan only applies to services for HEMTT and PLS vehicles in Active Army, Army National Guard, and Army Reserve components’ low-usage programs during non-combat operations. By the way, NCOMP doesn’t consider operational rotations to Korea or Europe or training exercises at the National Training Center (NTC), Joint Readiness Training Center (JRTC) or Joint Multinational Readiness Center (JMRC) combat operations.

Don’t put that TM away just yet! All operator-level preventive maintenance checks and services (PMCS) still apply.

NCOMP should eventually replace the Low Usage Program (LUP). For more info, check out TACOM Maintenance Action Message (MAM) 21-040 and TACOM MAM 21-042. Don’t forget you’ll need your CAC:
