Typically, ABFC P-36 is provided to an advanced
naval airbase located in friendly territory for rapid
runway repair. ABFC P-36 is also included with the
ABFCs to be deployed with the NCF participating in the
seizure, construction, and occupation of an advanced
naval airbase in enemy territory.
All U.S. military services have evaluated rapid
runway repair extensively. Presently, the U.S. Navy
incorporates the methods and standards set forth in U. S.
Air Force Regulation 93-12 (AFR-93-12), which
furnishes detailed guidance for rapid runway repair.
This regulation lists and defines the use of specific
equipment, materials, and manpower requirements
necessary to repair a war-damaged runway. Air Force
regulations of this type are similar in format and purpose
to a U.S. Navy Instruction.
Other than the ABFC Component P-36, other
facilities within the ABFC system for rapid repair of
airfield support are as follows:
Facility 121 OOWDWar damage repair kit for
aircraft fuel station
Facility 124 OOWDWar damage repair kit for
Facility 125 OOWDWar damage repair kit for
Facility 136 OOWDWar damage repair kit for
When the previous facilities are incorporated with
the P-36 and P-25 components, it greatly enhances the
capability of the NCF to respond to a hostile action
scenario directed against the United States or allied air
