Description

The Lightweight Maintenance Enclosure 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 vehicle 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 maintenance shelter.
