This publication is not applicable to tactical MHE assigned to deployable Fleet Marine Forces and Marine Corps activities for which the Commandant of the Marine Corps (CMC) has the primary support responsibility under the provisions of MCO P11262.2 (series).

These documented requirements, in conjunction with locally developed instructions, are intended to provide for the safe use of MHE and to extend its in-service life cycle.
