Military Publications & Manuals

The National Technical Information Service distributes Army technical manuals (TM's), field manuals (FM's), Army regulations (AR's), technical bulletins (TB), and other similar publications to the general public under arrangement with the U.S. Army Publishing Agency.

Search Tips

When you search for a particular number, ignore all punctuation. For example, to check the status of a particular field manual, enter the number as FM2422, not FM 24-22.

Use the truncation symbol, the asterisk, to look for a series of numbers, e.g., TM551520*, or terms that have common beginning character, e.g., M16*.

By putting quotes around words or a number series, you can search for a unique phrase. For example, to search for 2 1/2 ton trucks, search for "2 1/2" AND truck. Without the quotation marks you cannot search for terms separated with spaces, hyphens, commas, or any other punctuation marks.

If your search does not yield any results, NTIS still may be able to order the Army publication for you. Please call our sales desk to see if the publication is available through NTIS.

About the NTIS Military Publications Program

As part of our ongoing effort to provide our customers full access to the government's technical literature, NTIS has made arrangements with the U.S. Army Publishing Agency to offer these manuals and regulations to the public. Previously, these publications could only be ordered directly from the U.S. Army which was not equipped to readily handle such individual inquiries. Now, NTIS offers ready access to these important manuals and regulations. NTIS provides its customers with the quick placement of orders into the Army supply system and full support in cases of the occasional ordering delay. To order these manuals, customers must use the complete and accurate Army reference number.
