For this discussion on Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures, I will be discussing DA Pam (Standards in Training Commision). This book. Find the most up-to-date version of DA PAM at Engineering DA PAM – Standards in Weapons Training. This revision– o Reflects training ammunition requirements more closely aligned with actual.

The Standards in Training Commission was established in Its mission is to determine quantities and types of munitions required for soldiers, crews, and units to attain and sustain weapons proficiency relative to readiness levels. DA Pam identifies weapons and weapon systems for which training programs have been written and approved.
Also, commanders must consider the unit’s overall training program and objectives as specified by the applicable SM, CTT, and ARTEP, as well as the availability of simulators and devices.

Training strategies and ammunition requirements are not prescriptive. Commanders must determine and design strategies that allow their units to attain standards.
The STRAC strategies are models for training and resourcing and represent one way to attain and sustain standards. Because they are generic and notional, they do not generate specific requirements.

Commanders can select from dx generic menu of training events that allows them to train towards a specific assigned mission or training goal. This flexibility is intended to accommodate unit requirements.
Training strategy tables reflect generic requirements. They do not automatically translate into resource authorizations or allocations of rounds on the ground to be fired.
Factors affecting annual authorizations for training ammunition include: Figures are based on the number of weapons systems assigned, readiness levels, and quantities of ammunition needed to sustain soldier and crew proficiency. They apply to the weapon and weapon systems used throughout the force for both the Active and Reserve Components.
These pamphlets provide commanders and other unit trainers with a common set of standards for weapon and weapon system qualification. Also, they offer suggested weapons training strategies, a model for resource requirements, and measurable standards for evaluating overall training readiness.
Forecasting ammunition requirements is a peacetime procedure.
DA Pam (Standards in Training Commision) |
It is based on data in the pamphlets cited above and on projected training events such as individual weapons qualification, FTXs, and crew weapons qualification. Factors that impact requirements-determination forecasting include the following: Historical and actual ammunition consumption data from previous training exercises. Training ammunition requirements are determined using DA Form R. This document summarizes the total quantity of each DODIC needed to support training during the coming 12 months.
HQDA gives MACOMs the authorization for training ammunition based on stock availability, funding, ammunition production, transportation, and other considerations. Units prepare and use this forecast to maintain an up-to-date calculation of ammunition needs. MACOMs use it to determine requisition pamphet. This forecast also feeds the WARS. Generally, the procedure is as follows: Determine planned training requirements for each of the next 12 months.
Refer pwmphlet the computation data in DA Pams and Do not exceed a quantity when that quantity remains on the authorized allocation for the current fiscal year. Submit the completed forecast to the next higher headquarters. Units that request and receive ammunition from an ASA must maintain training ammunition management and control documents.
Use the documents listed below to manage training ammunition and missile authorizations, to control issue of ammunition and missiles, and to ensure that unexpended ammunition and ammunition residue are controlled until returned to the ASA: DA Form xa automated equivalent.
DA Forms and The G-3 or installation DOL usually manages this computer-based report.

The same storage and inventory procedures that apply to basic load ammunition apply to training ammunition. Also, AR outlines construction requirements for ammunition storage rooms and magazines, and DA Pam provides guidance on field storage and use of residue items for training. Installation commanders will establish and implement an amnesty program that d not intimidate the individual or prevent the individual pamphhlet freely turning in ammunition.
The intent of amnesty programs is to ensure maximum recovery, not to circumvent normal turn-in procedures. Commanders will monitor amnesty programs as indicators of effectiveness of ammunition accountability and ensure that they are not used to circumvent accountability.
