The LME is a frame supported lightweight shelter designed to provide
units with a covered facility to conduct tactical maintenance
operations. The LME is a modification of the Tent, Extendable, Modular,
PERsonnel (TEMPER) where extensions are added to the tent frame to add
the height needed for enclosure of tactical
and equipment. The end walls have been modified with sliding fabric
doors permitting total enclosure during conditions of extreme weather or
blackout. The LME has 18-inch diameter duct openings in each of the 16
ft. intermediate fabric sections located below the windows. The U.S.
Army and U.S. Marine Corps have adopted the LME as their standard
LME (Type I) LIN T49947: NSN 8340-01-456-3673 (Type
I) Technical Manual TM 10-5410-284-13&P. Operators Unit and Direct
Support Maintenance Manual, Including Repair Parts and Special Tools
The LME has successfully completed military durability,
snow and wind loads performed by the US Army Aberdeen Test Center.
