Dear Half-Mast,

I’ve been searching for the 8-amp, 250V glass fuse that’s used in the Joint Battle Command-Platform (JBC-P) communications equipment. Seems a shame to order a whole new cable for more than $300 when a fuse costs less than $2.

Have you got a lead on an NSN by any chance?

Dear Sergeant,

You can order the glass fuse you need with NSN 5920-01-592-8212, PN 0313008P, CAGE code 75915. That info will be included in the new TM 11-7010-613-13&P for the Mounted Family of Computer Systems (MFOCS), which will be authenticated soon.

Another option is to replace the cable with a newer one with a fuse that is less prone to breaking. Order the new cable with NSN 6150-01-691-0735, PN A3381302-003.

For answers to your questions about JBC-P, contact maintenance engineer Thomas Carpentier at:
