field-type shower and a washroom is shown in figure 9- 20. Basically, all field structures are derived from the 16- by 32-foot wood-frame tent. However, if more tent space  is  needed,  a  40-  by  100-foot  model  is  available. This tent is not difficult  to  assemble  because  it  is  put together  without  a  floor.  It  can  be  erected  without  a strongback  frame  since  it  comes  complete  with  ridge pieces,  poles,  stakes,  and  line,  and  does  not  require framing.  But  no  matter  how  easy  erection  may  seem, always read and follow the instructions. SEA HUT When   the   16-   by   32-foot   wood-frame   tent   is modified   with   a   metal   roof,   extended   rafters,   and screened-in  areas,  it  is  called  a  Southeast  Asia  (SEA) hut. An example of the completed product is shown in figure  9-21.  The  SEA  hut  was  originally  developed  in Vietnam  for  use  in  tropical  areas  by  U.S.  troops  for berthing; but, it can readily be adapted for any use in any situation. It is also known as a strongback because of the roof and sidewall materials. The  SEA  hut  is  usually  a  standard  prefabricated unit, but the design can be easily changed to fit local Figure 9-20.-Floor-framing plan. Figure 9-21.—Completed SEA huts. 9-12
