This unique electronic book on CD-ROM has a complete reproduction of the U.S. Army Field Manual, TOW Weapon System, FM 3-22.34, 192 pages. In addition, as a bonus, there are reproductions of over 50 vital U.S. Army Field Manuals! This manual discusses the many changes in the TOW missile, TOW training, and OPFOR armored vehicles and countermeasures. It includes training information on the M220A1 (basic) and M220A2 tube-launched, optically tracked, wire-guided (TOW) weapon systems and carrier M966. Its intended audience includes leaders and members of mechanized infantry, light infantry, airborne, and airmobile infantry organizations who train and test individuals and crews. The TOW is a crew-portable heavy antitank missile weapon system that can be operated from armored, lightly armored, and unarmored multipurpose vehicles and helicopters, and from the ground mount. The system consists of a guided missile and a launcher to engage tanks, fortifications, and other materiel targets. The term TOW is an acronym derived from the words that describe the principal operating features of the missile tube-launched, optically tracked, wire-guided. The launcher initiates, tracks, and controls the flight of the missile by guidance signals transmitted over a command-link wire that connects the missile with the launcher. The TOW weapon system consists of a launcher, which has tracking and control capabilities, and the missile, which is encased in a launch container. The launcher is equipped with self-contained, replaceable units. Capabilities. The TOW is mainly an antitank weapon used for long-range engagement of armored targets. It can be employed in all weather conditions as long as the gunner can see his target through the daysight tracker or nightsight. The TOW also provides a long-range assault capability against heavily fortified bunkers, pill boxes, and gun emplacements. The ITOW missile can destroy targets at a minimum range of 65 meters and a maximum range of 3,750 meters. The TOW 2B missile can destroy targets at a minimum range of 288 meters when fired from the ground mount and 200 meters when fired from the HMMWV or BFV. The TOW 2B has a maximum range of 3,750 meters whether ground- or vehicle-mounted. The automatic missile tracking and control capabilities of the TOW weapon system provide a high first-round-hit probability. To operate the system, the gunner places the crosshairs of the sighting system (either the daysight tracker or the nightsight) on the target, fires the missile, and centers the crosshairs on the target image until missile impact. The optical tracking and command functions within the system guide the missile along the gunner s line of sight. The gunner does not apply lead, windage, or elevation. Mobility. The TOW weapon system can be vehicle-mounted or ground emplaced (tripod-mounted) for operation. Missiles can be launched from either operational mode. The entire system can be hand-carried by a weapon crew; therefore, emplacement sites can be changed quickly to minimize detection or to engage targets that are out of range. The vehicle-mounted launcher is more mobile and can be quickly prepared for use. The launcher can be assembled and disassembled without the use of tools. Built-in self-test circuits can be used to check the operational condition of the assembled launcher whether ground- or vehicle-mounted.
