�WHY NOT MOPP IV?�
- Gulf War-era DU guidance recommended MOPP IV (or chemical protective mask) for field expediency
- MOPP IV (or the �gas mask�) offers excellent protection--but isn�t always the best alternative due to:
- association with acute NBC hazards
- safety & performance concerns
- degraded situational awareness
- MOPP IV (left) is NOT required for personal protection from DU!!
