Abstract : This research product addresses the progress of research on armor skill retention by reviewing 74 pertinent works. These works include book chapters, empirical studies, review and theoretical articles, and technical and research reports. The main factors affecting military skill retention are categorized and discussed according to training, task, and individual difference factors. The discussion of factors indicates that predicting armor skill retention is difficult because (a) little is actually known about armor skill retention, and (b) interactive effects were found for most of the previously identified elements of skill retention. Potential areas of research are discussed.
