CHAPTER 11
DEMOLITION TO PREVENT ENEMY USE
11-1. General
When capture or abandonment of the tank to an enemy
is imminent, the responsible unit commander makes the
decision either to destroy the unit or to render it
inoperative. Based on this decision, orders are issued
which  cover  the  desired  extent  of  destruction.
Explosives, weapons fire, and burn-ing, either alone or
in combination, are the most effective methods to
employ. Whatever method of destruction is used, it is
essential to destroy the same vital items of all tanks.
11-2. Preferred Demolition Methods
a. Demolition by Explosives. Place as many of the
following charges as the situation permits and detonate
them simultaneously with detonating cord and a suitable
detonator.
(1) 100-, 250-, and 500-barrel capacity tanks
(a) One 2-pound charge against the
base of the tank.
(b) One 2-pound charge against the
base of the manhole dome in the deck.
