RRR kit that contains FRP panels and all the necessary ancillary hardware to field two
larger or four small mats.
2-2.3.3 Air Force. An RRR equipment set is a standardized set of equipment and
vehicles that enables Air Force civil engineers to conduct RRR. There are three fielded
RRR sets. The sets are graduated in a building-block manner to provide a designated
crater repair capability. For a detailed listing of equipment and vehicles contained in
each kit, see Air Force Pamphlet (AFPAM) 10-219, Volume 4, Rapid Runway Repair
2-126.96.36.199 Basic (R-1) Set. This set supports the repair of three bomb craters (15
meters [50 feet] in diameter) with AM-2 matting and/or FFM in four hours. Basic sets
are currently in place at most theater locations and contain approximately 59 items of
vehicles/construction equipment (e.g., front-end loaders, dump trucks, excavators) and
additional supplemental items (flood lights, spall repair material, AM-2, fiberglass mats).
2-188.8.131.52 Supplemental (R-2) Set. This set contains additional vehicles and
equipment which are additive to the R-1 set and gives the capability to repair six craters
in four hours. The R-2 set contains 26 items of vehicles/construction equipment and
2-184.108.40.206 Supplemental (R-3) Set. This set contains additional vehicles and
equipment that, when combined with the R-1 and R-2 sets, enables six repair teams to
accomplish 12 crater repairs in four hours. Only a few main operating bases have the
R-3 package in-place. The R-3 set contains 18 pieces of vehicles/construction
equipment and supplemental items.
Crater Repair Procedures
Crushed Stone Crater Repairs
2-220.127.116.11 Different Types
Debris Backfill Crater. Use
when subsurface debris
is plentiful and suitable for
filling the crater. Fill the crater with debris up to 457 millimeters (18 inches) below the
surface. Fill the remaining portion of the crater with crushed stone.
Choke Ballast Over Debris Crater. Use when subsurface debris is suitable for
fill, but limited. Fill the crater with useable debris. Continue to fill the crater up to 457
millimeters (18 inches) below the surface with ballast rock, and fill the remaining portion
of the crater with crushed stone.
Choke Ballast Repair. Use when water is standing in the crater or if subsurface
material is unsuitable for filling the crater. Fill the crater with ballast rock up to 457
millimeters (18 inches) below the pavement surface. Fill the remaining portion of the
crater with crushed stone.
