1-7. REPORTING EQUIPMENT IMPROVEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS (EIR). If your TAP needs improvement, let us
know. Send us an EIR. You, the user, are the only one who can tell us what you don't like about your equipment. Let us
know why you don't like the design or performance. Put it on an SF 368 (Product Quality Deficiency Report). Mail it to
us at: Commander, U.S. Army Aviation and Troop Command, ATTN: AMSAT-I-MDO, 4300 Goodfellow Blvd., St. Louis,
MO 63120-1798. We will send you a reply.
1-8. CORROSION PREVENTION AND CONTROL.
Corrosion Prevention and Control (CPC) of Army materiel is a continuing concern. It is important that any
corrosion problems with TAP be reported so that the problem can be corrected and improvements can be made to
prevent the problem in future items.
While corrosion is typically associated with rusting of metals, it can also include deterioration of other materials,
such as rubber and plastic. Unusual cracking, softening, swelling or breaking of these materials may be a corrosion
If a corrosion problem is identified, it can be reported using SF 368, Quality Deficiency Report. Use of key words
such as "corrosion", "rust", "deterioration", or "cracking" will assure that the information is identified as a CPC problem.
This form should be submitted to the address specified in DA Pam 738-750.
