    1. 107 COMBAT SERVICE SUPPORT ELEMENT (CSSE) FUNDAMENTALS References: [a] MCWP 4-11, Tactical Level Logistics [b] MCRP 5-12D, Organization of Marine Corps Forces (PCN 14400005000) [c] TM 11240-15/4B, Motor Transportation Technical Characteristics Manual [d] MCWP 4-12, Marine Corps Operations Level Logistics [e] MCWP 4-1, Logistics Operations (PCN 14300005800) [f] MCWP 4-6, MAGTF Supply Operations [g] TM 09109A-10/1, High Speed High Mobility Crane Operators Manual [h] TM-09276A-24/2, Truck Forklift Variable Reach Service Manual


    3. 107.1 Explain the mission of the Force Service Support Group (FSSG). [ref. b, p. 5-1] 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.

    4. 107.2 Explain how an FSSG is employed. [ref. b, p. 5-1] • Provide centralized ground supply support. • Provide authorized overflow organizational maintenance support. Coordinate transportation support. • Provide general engineering support. • Provide health service (medical and dental). • Coordinate services support, including security support, postal, disbursing, and exchange services; legal services, CSS-related CA support; and graves registration.

    5. 107.3 Name the battalions in an FSSG. [ref. b, p. 5-2]

    6. 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.

    7. 107.5 What is the CSSE of a Marine Expeditionary Brigade (MEB)? [ref.?] 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.

    8. 107.6 What is the CSSE of a Marine Expeditionary Force (MEF)? [ref. b, p. 5-4]

    9. 107.7 State the six functional areas of Combat Service Support (CSS).[ref. a, pp. 1-3, 1-4] Tactical logistics is normally categorized in six functional areas: • Supply • Maintenance • Transportation • General engineering • Health services • and Services.

    10. 107.7 Cont.

    11. 107.8 Define War Reserve Material (WRM). [ref. e, ch. 2, p. 2-19; ref. f, p. 2-1] • WRM is defined as mission-essential principal end items, secondary items, and munitions required to attain operational objectives in the scenarios authorized for sustainability planning and other stockage objectives approved for programming in the Defense Planning Guidance. • WRM inventories are acquired during peacetime. • Inventories are flexible, and they provide an expansion capability that can respond to spectrum regional contingencies, while minimizing investment in resources.

    12. 107.9 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 • a. Maintenance During Amphibious Assault • b. Maintenance During Transition Periods • c. Maintenance During Subsequent Operations • d. Organizational Maintenance • e. Intermediate Maintenance • f. Recovery, Evacuation, and Repair Cycle

    13. 107.9 Cont. Organizational Maintenance 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.

    14. 107.9 Cont. Intermediate Maintenance The three elements of an intermediate maintenance concept are the MST, the CSSE forward maintenance detachment, and the FSSG intermediate maintenance activity (IMA). • The CSSE forward maintenance detachment is the element of a CSSD that operates the maintenance facilities and collection points far forward. • The forward support maintenance detachment • Evacuates inoperable equipment from supported units’ collection points. • Performs intermediate maintenance within its capabilities. • Provides repairmen, tools, and test equipment to maintenance support teams.

    15. 107.10b. High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV) [ref. c, p. 2-7] 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.

    16. 107.10b. Cont • The M1043 is an armament carrier (with supplemental armor) model of the M998 series of 1-1/4 ton trucks. • It is intended to be used primarily as a weapons carrier in the Heavy Machinegun Section, Weapons Company, Infantry Battalion. The M1043 is a fully enclosed, aluminum body tactical truck, fitted with additional aluminum armor which provides added ballistic protection to the crew, equipment and ammunition. It is designed as a weapons platform for the M60 7.62mm machinegun, the M2 .50 caliber machinegun and the MK19 40mm machinegun. It also transports weapon spares, ammunition and a crew of two. The M1043 features a hatch on top of the body and a mount capable of mounting either machinegun.
