The FSSG CE provides general and direct support and sustained CSS above the organic capabilities of supported elements of MAGTFs in the functional areas of CSS during deployment and employment of the MEF and smaller, geographically separated MAGTFs in all levels of conflict.
107.4 What is the Combat Service Support Element (CSSE) of a Marine Expeditionary Unit (Special Operations Capable) (MEU (SOC))? [ref. b, p. 6-3 thru 6-5]
The MEU(SOC) CSSE is a MEU(SOC) service support group (MSSG). The MSSG consists of detachments from the FSSG tailored to provide a full range of CSS necessary for the MEU(SOC) to accomplish all assigned missions. Command and control support is provided by a detachment from the communications company of the H&S battalion. The detachment provides communications support to the MSSG.
The BSSG is task-organized around a brigade service support group. This element has engineering, supply, transportation, landing support for beach, port and airfield delivery, medical, and maintenance capabilities.
Tactical logistics is normally categorized in six functional areas:
107.9 2-19; ref. f, p. 2-1]Discuss the differences between echelons of maintenance performed at organizational and intermediate ground equipment maintenance.[ref. a, pp. 5-12 thru 5-14]
Maintenance involves those actions taken to retain materiel or restore it to serviceable condition.
Ground Maintenance Support Operations
Units owning equipment have organizational maintenance responsibilities. Proper maintenance is essential to sustain combat operations.
Maintenance Contact Teams (MCTs) conduct recovery, evacuation, and repair. They determine whether an item is reparable at the recovery site. The MCT either fixes the item, requests parts and an intermediate level maintenance support team (MST) from the CSSE, or supervises the item evacuation.
The three elements of an intermediate maintenance concept are the MST, the CSSE forward maintenance detachment, and the FSSG intermediate maintenance activity (IMA).
The M998 is the baseline vehicle For the M998 series of 1-1/4 ton trucks. It Is used to transport equipment, materials, crews and up to eight passengers.
The M998 is an open aluminum body, canvas top, general purpose tactical truck designed for use over all types of roads, in all weather conditions. Its high power to weight ratio, four-wheel drive, and high ground clearance combine to give it cross-country mobility. The M998 series contains metric components and requires metric common and special tools. It is equipped with a towing pintle for towing and tie-down/lifting eyes for air, rail, highway or ocean shipment.
The MK48 and its associated trailers form the Logistics Vehicle Sy (LVS) . They are used primarily by combat service support motor transport units to haul supplies in large quantities from beachheads, ports, railheads,or airfields to combat service support areas.The
MK48 is an all-metal, fully enclosed, 4x4 tactical truck. The crew consists of two. The MK48’s low-profile,cab-forward configuration permits loading aboard military aircraft with no preparation. The MK48 is designed to power LVS trailer units:The MK14 Mod O Trailer, Container Hauler (D0876); the MK15 Mod O Trailer, Wrecker-Recovery (D0877); the MK16 Mod O Trailer,Semitrailer Adapter (D0878); the MK17 Mod O Trailer, Dropside Cargo (D0879); and the MK18 Mod O Trailer, Ribbon Bridge Transporter (D0881).The MK48 can be attached to any one of these trailer units through an articulation joint to form an integral, dual body, fully articulated,8x8 vehicle with cross-country mobility.
Marine (FBFLT) Truck Lift, Fork Variable Reach, Diesel engine driven, four-wheel drive, four-wheel steer, pneumatic tires, rough terrain, 10,000 pound capacity as 48” load center
The forklift is intended for use as a materials handling forklift with a capability of unloading, transporting, and loading boxes, containers, palletized ammunition loads, and multiple launch rocket system pods. The mobility of the forklift, with and without payload, is intended to cover working areas where high floatation and traction characteristics are required.
107.12 Preposition Force (MPF).State the responsibility of the following FSSG components: ref. b, pp. 5-5 thru 5-76]a. Headquarters and service battalion –
The H&S battalion provides command and control, administration, services, communications, and security support to the FSSG and coordination of services support beyond supported-unit organic capabilities to MAGTFs
The maintenance battalion provides general support and intermediate (3d and 4th echelon) maintenance support for Marine Corps-furnished tactical ordnance, engineering, motor transport, communications electronics, and general support equipment of the MEF.
The supply battalion provides general support supply support, except for bulk fuel and Navy-funded stock/ programs, for sustaining MAGTF operations
The engineer support battalion provides general engineering support of an expeditionary nature to the MEF, including survivability, countermobility, and mobility enhancements; EOD; and general support supply support incident to the handling, storage, dispensing of bulk class I (water) and bulk class III and III(A) items
