Keep M3 Tripod Until You Get M205Posted: 2016/16/08
On Page 43 of PS 760 (Mar 16) we told you the good news that the M205 tripod is replacing the M3 tripod.
It’s good news because the M205 is 32 percent lighter than the M3 and also includes an integral traverse and elevating mechanism.
But some units are jumping the gun and turning in their M3s before they get the M205. Not a good idea! They could be without tripods for a long time until they do get the M205. So keep using your M3s until you get the M205.
But once you get the M205, it’s important you turn in your M3s within 30 days. The Army will continue to use M3s for 3-4 years, so they need your M3s for other units. If any M3s aren’t usable, turn them in for local disposal.
Do not try to order the M205. If will be fielded through total package fielding (TPF).
