Abstract : A Soviet front armor attack will involve as many as 13,000 vehicles. Sixty per cent of these will be support vehicles. A Soviet front will start the invasion with a 90-day supply of war fighting material; however, divisions will only have a 3 to 5-day supply. Material must be brought forward and the primary mover will be the truck for all categories of supplies except for fuel. Fuel movement must be predominantly by tactical pipeline because the Soviets do not have sufficient quantities of fuel trucks to support a fast moving invasion force. The study concludes that fuel movement facilities (both the pipeline and the trucks) are valid interdiction targets.
