CARGO BED COVER (CBC) HMMWV, TYPE I
The CBC is not a shelter system. Personnel may not ride or sleep in the back of the vehicle when
the CBC is used.
Only approved lifting devices should be used to install and remove the CBC.
Personnel should not stand under the CBC while it is being hoisted.
EQUIPMENT CHARACTERISTICS, CAPABILITIES AND FEATURES.
The CBC is an alternative to bow and canvas covers and a replacement to the locally constructed built-
up non-standard plywood, steel, or fiberglass shelters currently used in the field for storage of mission
equipment. Unlike the bow and canvas the CBC cannot transport personnel, but troops can work
inside the CBC once the CBC is deployed.
