About the Edition

This report describes firings of the A-10/GAU-8 weapon system on 30 October 1979 against a Soviet tank company simulated by 10 combat loaded M-47 tanks. The pilots making the firing passes attacked at low altitude and used correspondingly low dive angles in order to simulate movement through a hostile air defense system. Ammunition used in the attacks comprised 30mm armor piercing incendiary (API) rounds, which proved Aerojet Lot Number AJD 79A181-001 to be effective damage agents against substantial areas of the U.S. MK 47 tanks used as targets. The pilots in nine successful firing passes (one pilot missed his intended target) fired a total of 289 rounds of which 98 impacted the targets. Of the projectiles impacting on targets, 22 achieved perforations of the armored envelope. Significant results include 3 tanks immobilized, of which 2 tanks were also silenced and six others damaged.

A physical damage assessment is an estimate of the extent of physical damage to a target based upon observed or interpreted damage. This post- attack target anal-ysis should be a coordinated effort among combat units, component commands, the JTF, the combat-ant command, and national agencies. Combat assessment is composed of three major components: battle damage assessment (BDA) munitions effects assessment; reattack recommendation. The GS-3 is normally the single point of contact for combat assessment at the joint force level, assisted by the joint force GS The Clark County Damage Assessment Team (DAT) is a network of Building Safety staff and volunteers that evaluate the structural safety of residential and commercial buildings in the event of emergencies or natural disasters. Local residents with building inspection, construction, design, or engineering backgrounds are invited to sign up as DAT volunteers. How is Combat Damage Repair Assessment Team abbreviated?
