"The Joint Appropriations Conference Report 101-938, October 24, 1990, requested the Army report on requirements for Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC' protection for armored systems and plans to meet those requirements. The Army's report covers NBC protection requirements for armored systems fighting on the NBC contaminated battlefield. NBC requirements seek to achieve a balance between personnel and equipment survivability when NBC protection and materiel survivability capabilities are incorporated into armored systems. The elements of the NBC protective system requirements are embodied in protection, detection, decontamination, and NBC contamination survivability. Forty-seven armored vehicles were surveyed for NBC protection requirements and contamination survivability. The report identifies the status of currant vehicles and the direction the Army is pursuing to protect armored systems from NBC hazards."
