b. Pitching the Tent.
(1) Remove the tent body and screen wall from the tent cover. Remove the poles and pins from their
containers. Be sure that all items are present and in serviceable condition. See Appendix D for complete
listing of components.
(2) Select site for tent and follow instructions in paragraph 2.7a above.
The tent can be pitched by five soldiers in approximately 60 minutes. When
conditions permit, the tent should be pitched away from natural elevations or tall
equipment that might obstruct a draft through the tent stack.
(3) Spread tent out according to ground plan (Figure 2-2) with four 9-foot (2.745-meters) and six 6-foot,
2-inch (1.950-meters) side poles and twenty 24-inch (61.000-cm) pins in proper position (Figure 2-3).
