ASSESSING BATTLEFIELD DAMAGE
Estimated number of personnel to effect repair.
What materials are required?
Recover status (recovery vehicle required or self-recovery.)
Once these questions are answered, a determination can be made as to whether the
vehicle should be repaired on-site, recovered to a collection point and repaired, or
recovered to the rear.
(2) BDARF-6, -7,and -8 address specific systems and subsystems. These
forms are designed to assist the assessor to rapidly assess the damage and rapidly
determine the appropriate BDAR fix. The portion of this form which addresses parts
should be filled out only when the tactical situation permits. Where possible these
forms should follow the damaged equipment or be sent to the rear as a record of what
damages occurred and what repairs were effected and where.
