Abstract : Weapons systems support' by AMC promises to supply mobile combat units more effectively and to reduce present depot concentrations of some property subclasses. However, there will be a tendency to increase stock holdings as a result, and this aspect should be costed if possible. It is important too that the repair and procurement of common items continue to be on a commodity basis, and that subsidiary 'weapon support' ownership accounts are not allowed to develop. (Author)
