4-8. Other Demolition Methods
a. Scattering and Concealment. Remove all
easily accessible parts such as the injector assem-
bly, fuel pump, lube pump, and hydraulic trans-
mitter system. Scatter them in foliage, bury them
in dirt or sand, or throw them in a lake, stream,
well or other body of water.
b. Burning. Pack rags, clothing or canvas
around the hammer and open drain plugs in fuel
and lube tanks to allow slow leakage. Pour gas-
oline, oil, or diesel fuel over this material and
c. Submersion. Totally submerge the hammer
in a body of water to provide water damage and
concealment. Salt water will do greater damage
than fresh water.
All operators should receive thorough training in
the destruction of the hammer. Refer to FM 5-25.
Simulated destruction using all of the methods
listed above, should be included in the operator
training program. It must be emphasized in
training that demolition operations are usually
necessitated by critical situations when time
available for carrying out destruction is limited.
For this reason it is necessary that operators be
thoroughly familiar with all methods of destruc-
tion without reference to this or any other man-
