However, DRMS does not sell usable weapons and other combat equipment to the public, including combat aircraft, armored vehicles and small arms. Such items are required to be demilitarized prior to sale. Demilitarization is the act of destroying the item's military capability and generally reduces the item to scrap. Capt. F.G. Leeder, USN Staff Director, DLA Public Affairs
