MIL-T-1712 Revision T, September 16, 1991
TENT, GENERAL PURPOSE, MEDIUM
The medium-sized tent is designed to be used primarily for the quartering of troops. However, it can be used as a command post, fire support control center, mess hall, storage area, component of a field hospital, or to house such components as a field bakery. Although this tent is intended to be used principally in temperate and tropic areas, it can be used effectively in cold climate areas by the addition of a tent liner that is available. Protective corner covers (solely a Marine Corps requirement) are available for use in hot, wet climates when side walls and end flaps are raised to a horizontal position. When required (see 6.2) four corner covers are supplied for use with each tent.
