This manual provides MP forces with the tactics, techniques, and procedures and related information for the contemporary operating environment. It will optimize the capabilities of our MP forces as they conduct area security, maneuver, and mobility support operations. The ASV equips MP forces with a unique platform unmatched by other combat support or combat service support branches. The ASV enables MP forces to mitigate a host of contemporary threats while affording maximum protection to the crew. Employing the ASV in Army and joint operations expands the ability of the maneuver commander to project force protection and sustainment operations throughout the area of operations.
