Innovative Training Aids Support EOD Mission

A PTAB 2.5 submunition is being replicated and detailed by the 982nd Maintenance Support Squadron at Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas, July 22, for use at an explosive ordnance disposal training facility. EOD training aids were fabricated with plastic and steel to make them look, weigh and feel like the original item. Details such as working springs, internal pieces, markings and bolts have been added to make training aids as detailed as possible.
