Summary: Information and primary instructional film.
Description: I. Reel one. Basic performance statistics. A word of caution: "The Weasel is not a surf vehicle. If you try to operate it in choppy water, you're asking for a ducking." Comparison between M29 and M29-C. Inspection procedure, with relevant CUs of components. Driving instructions and handling characteristics.
II. Reel two. Driving in muddy terrain. Clearance of debris from suspension system after passing through swamp. Procedures before entering and upon emergence from deep water. How to emerge onto mud, and instructions for use of the capstan for self-recovery if the vehicle becomes stuck. Commentary cautions drivers about the Weasel's limited capability for rough water crossings - in choppy water "don't take chances, turn back immediately". A few more points: how to get clear of underwater growths; importance of regular preventive maintenance - track tension, lubrication, etc. "With proper maintenance, the M29-C cargo carrier will do its part to get men and supplies where they're most needed. Do your part - keep it rolling."
