    TECHNICAL MANUAL
    OPERATOR'S MANUAL FOR
    BODY ARMOR SET, INDIVIDUAL COUNTERMINE (BASIC)

    EQUIPMENT CHARACTERISTICS, CAPABILITIES, AND
    FEATURES

    The BASIC is designed to provide protection to the soldier conducting
    countermine clearing operations by reducing the effects of blast and
    fragments from small to medium anti-personnel (AP) mines and
    booby traps. Although the BASIC enhances the protection to the
    soldier, the suit will not protect the wearer against the detonation of all
    AP mines; injury or death can occur from the effects of a detonated
    mine while wearing the BASIC. The BASIC provides varying levels of
    ballistic protection to distinct zones of the body and balances the
    levels of increased protection against the soldier's ability to
    accomplish countermine tasks. The standard precautions taken by a
    soldier during minefield clearing operations must still be applied when
    wearing the BASIC.

    The BASIC is intended to be worn by soldiers when conducting area
    clearance countermine operations in accordance with FM 20-32 and
    applying appropriate tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs).
    Only the types of boots and clothing listed in WP 0008 00 should be
    used with the BASIC components.

    The BASIC is equipped with straps and hook and pile fasteners that
    enable the components to be easily removed in an emergency from
    an injured soldier.
