Abstract : This study compares four vehicles as possible candidates for a command and control vehicle for use by the Light Cavalry Regiment employed in support of a contingency corps. The need for a new command and control vehicle is based on the premise that the current M577 Carrier, Command Post may not be the best candidate for the Light Cavalry Regiment. Current 'light' organization command post operations are presented along with the proposed organization and mission profile for a Light Cavalry Regiment (LCR) operating as part of a lodgement operation for a contingency corps. The variants considered in the study are four vehicles which are all currently in the U.S. Army inventory but not necessarily currently fielded in a command and control role. In this study decision matrixes compare the variants and provide a raw score in the areas of survivability, mobility, compatibility, user orientation and deployability. A final matrix compares each vehicle's raw score. This data provides the recommendation that the FUCHS vehicle is the best command and control platform for the LCR.
