To meet the Army's need for battlefield observation, troop movement, medical evacuation, and rapid logistical and tactical support for combat engaged forces, the 1966 program provides additional quantities of Iroquois, Chinook, and light observation helicopters thus continuing to emphasize aerial mobility and surveillance. 2. Aircraft spares and repair parts. Included are high cost components and support materiel critical to the operation of Army aircraft. The 1966 program continues to provide for initial provisioning, peacetime replacement and war reserve inventories which are not carried in the Army stock fund.

3. Missiles. This activity includes both surface-to-air and surface-to-surface missiles. In the former category, continued procurement in 1966 of Redeye missiles will provide frontline combat units with an effective defense against low altitude enemy aircraft. Initial procurement of Chaparral missiles will provide a forward area air defense system against low and medium altitude high performance enemy aircraft. Modification improvements to the Nike Hercules and Hawk air-defense systems planned for 1966 will provide for a more effective air defense within CONUS and oversea theaters of operation. The surface-to-surface missile program for 1966 continues procurement of Shillelagh missiles to further improve the armor defeating capability of Army combat elements. Procurement of SS-11 antitank missiles for employment on Army helicopters also is continued. Pershing missiles are planned for continued procurement and improvement modification.

4. Missile spares and repair parts.-This covers initial provisioning and replenishment repair parts, and support materiel.

5. Weapons and combat vehicles. This activity covers all weapons fired by crews, individuals, and armored vehicles. The 1966 program will provide materiel to replace training consumption, wear out, and obsolescence, and permit a quantitative and qualitative improvement of the inventory. Enhanced capabilities will be achieved with the initial procurement in 1966 of the General Sheridan armored reconnaissance vehicle. Forward defense against high-performance aircraft will be improved with the initial procurement in 1966 of a mobile air defense system. Continued procurement of M-60 medium tanks, light recovery vehicles, full-tracked armored cargo carriers, self-propelled 81-mm. mortars, and the 155-mm. and 8-inch self-propelled artillery weapons, will provide increased firepower, range, and mobility for combat forces.

6. Tactical and support vehicles.-These are the unarmored wheeled vehicles which provide surface mobility to the field forces and the world-wide logistical system. The 1965 and 1966 programs provide for the procurement of 36,000 and 40,000, respectively of 4-ton, 21⁄2-ton, and 5-ton trucks, and additional quantities of trailers.

7. Communications and electronics equipment.-This activity provides reliable, rugged and mobile communication equipment to achieve command control over dispersed forces and weapons systems. The 1966 program continues procurement of modern FM series vehicular and man-packed communication sets, and introduces single sideband radio equipment which provides greater frequency coverage and range capability. Deployed airdefense coordination and direction systems will be kept modern through selective modification which enables airdefense units to operate effectively under adverse condi

tions. Strategic electronic systems and cryptographic equipment and devices are provided to enable commanders to respond quickly over secure communication circuits.

8. Other support equipment. This covers the logistical equipment essential to the mobility and maintenance of Army combat forces in the field. The 1966 program continues procurement of electrical generators, crane shovels, tractors, materials-handling equipment, and other items essential to the balanced support of the combat forces. In addition, the 1966 program provides for the modification of ships to augment the forward floating depot fleet.

9. Ammunition. This activity provides for the procurement of conventional ammunition to improve the capability of combat engaged forces and to support the peacetime training program. In 1966, procurement will continue for 152-mm. ammunition for the General Sheridan, for the 7.62 mm. NATO standard round, ammunition for the M-60 medium tank and field artillery weapons, chemical and antipersonnel ammunition, fuzes and other explosives.

10. Production-base support. This activity provides industrial facilities needed for production of end items and components and for production engineering in advance of procurement. It also provides for the layaway of Government-owned plants and equipment at the time production is completed and where it has been established that the facilities will be required in the event of mobilization.

This appropriation provides for the construction of ships and the conversion of existing ships, including all installed machinery, propulsion equipment, electronic and electrical equipment, guns, torpedo and missile launching systems and communications systems. It also provides for the procurement of long lead-time items for ships which are to be authorized in the 1967 program.

This increment of the Navy's long-range shipbuilding plan continues a modernization and replacement program designed to provide the fleets with modern balanced forces which can respond effectively to a wide variety of challenges in supporting our national policies.

In this budget, as in previous years, the program includes all costs necessary for ship construction during the building period.

Antisubmarine warfare ships.-Twenty antisubmarine warfare ships will be constructed or converted to provide long-range detection and weapon capability. New construction will include 4 nuclear-powered attack submarines, 10 destroyer escorts, and 1 submarine tender. In addition, five destroyers will be converted as a part of a modernization program to increase antisubmarine warfare capabilities of the fleet.

Attack aircraft carriers.-One Midway-class attack aircraft carrier will be converted and modernized to maintain adequate levels of mobile naval air strength.

Anti-air warfare ships.-Two frigates and one cruiser will be modernized to increase the antiair warfare capabilities of the fleet.

Amphibious ships.-A 5-year program was initiated in 1965 to improve our amphibious assault capabilities and thereby to provide a more flexible limited war posture. The second increment of this program will include 15 ships to be constructed in 1966. Eight of these ships are tank-landing ships, while others are cargo and personnel docking ships of various sorts. One amphibious flagship will also be started.

Mine warfare. Four ocean minesweepers and one special minesweeper (conversion) in 1966 will initiate a 5-year program to improve mine warfare capabilities. Smaller, slower, and less useful coastal minesweepers will be replaced.

Patrol ships.-Ten motor gun boats and two hydrofoil patrol boats are programed in 1966 to improve counterinsurgency warfare capability.

Logistics ships and craft. The 1966 program continues a program begun in 1965 to provide larger, faster, and more efficient ships for providing food, fuel, and ammunition. Seven ships will be constructed including ammunition ships, tankers, a stores ship, and a destroyer tender. In addition, two oilers will be modernized for use with the Military Sea Transportation Service.
