in the side rails or rear sill that are not covered by
the cover plates, other material such as 1/4" thick
plywood, hardboard, etc., must be positioned over these
additional apertures and be temporarily affixed to the
semitrailer whenever transporting ammunition items.

Authorization List (Appendix C) and are used in conjunction with side panels, side
stakes and spreader chains when transporting ammunition and using wooden dunnage
(blocking and bracing) to restrain the load. The cover plates are used to close the
apertures in the vehicle side rails.
b. Cover plates are positioned on side rails prior to installing side panels and
c. Cover plate stowage. When not in use, the cover plates will be stowed with
the side panels and side stakes against the forward bulkhead.
