Abstract : A review of Canadian activities in the field of development of military vehicles reveals a relatively low rate of success in producing equipment to meet the needs of the Forces. The reasons for failure vary from project to project and include economic, financial and managerial factors coupled with a tendency to pursue too far the fulfillment of unrealistic operational requirements. A highly significant factor common to all development projects has been the absence of a sound technological base from which to embark on the development process.
