     2. DOCTRINE FOR USE OF CHEMICAL WARFARE AGENT TOPICAL SKIN
     PROTECTANT IS AS FOLLOWS:
        A. GENERAL.
             I. THE TOPICAL SKIN PROTECTANT (TSP) IS FOR USE IN
     PROTECTING THE SKIN FROM THE EFFECTS OF CHEMICAL WARFARE BLISTER
     (VESICANT) AGENTS. THE TSP PROVIDES INDIVIDUAL SKIN PROTECTION


     PAGE 02 RHIPAAR2649 UNCLAS
     BY DELAYING THE PENETRATION OF MUSTARD AGENTS, THE USE OF TSP
     ENHANCES THE EFFECTIVENESS OF FIELD SKIN DECONTAMINATION SYSTEMS.
           2. THE TSP CREATES A PHYSICAL BARRIER BETWEEN THE SKIN
     AND THE AGENTI ONLY THOSE AREAS OF SKIN HAVING AN EFFECTIVE LAYER OF
     TSP WILL BE PROTECTED.
            3. THE TSP PROBABLY IS NOT EFFECTIVE AGAINST THICKENED
     SOMAN NOR VX.
            4. INDIVIDUALS SHOULD USE TSP AS AN ADJUNCT TO MISSION-
     ORIENTED PROTECTION POSTURE (MOPP), NOT AS A SUBSTITUTE.
     ESTABLISHED DOCTRINE FOR MOPP IS FOLLOWED IF AGENT CONTAMINATION
     IS ANTICIPATED OR SUSPECTEDs EVEN IF THE INDIVIDUAL IS WEARING
     TSP.
            5. ALL SOLDIERS AT RISK IN A POTENTIALLY CONTAMINATED
     CHEMICAL WARFARE ENVIRONMENT SHOULD USE TSP.
            6. EACH SOLDIER SHOULD BE ISSUED 2 BOTTLES OF TSP FOR
     EACH DAY OF USE.
