It's also quite possible that the reporter got it wrong, and that the
troubleshooting guide -was- part of the doc set. In fact, when I read the
item, my first assumption was that the reporter had made a mistake.

A large chunk of the tech writing for military systems actually consists of
the troubleshooting guides. IIRC, the in-flight troubleshooting guides for
the C-5 transport airplane are about three or four times the size of the
pilot's flight manual, as an example.

We'll probably never know for sure in this case...unless somebody on the
list happens to know Col. Toomey...
