FM 3-19.6: ARMORED SECURITY VEHICLE
Official US Army Field Manual in Acrobat PDF file format.
This manual provides MP forces with the tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) and related information for the contemporary operating environment. This manual will optimize the capabilities of our MP forces as they conduct area security, maneuver, and mobility support operations. The ASV equips MP forces with a unique platform unmatched by other combat support (CS) or combat service support (CSS) branches. The ASV enables MP forces to mitigate a host of contemporary threats while affording maximum protection to the crew.
Employing the ASV in Army and joint operations expands the ability of the maneuver commander to project force protection and sustainment operations throughout the area of operations (AO). Army and joint operations (such as Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom) have spawned an increase in interest and production of the ASV to support such operations. Accordingly, this doctrine is drawn largely from lessons learned in those operations. Specifically, the contents of this manual are a direct product of veterans with ASV operational experience in Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom.
