Abstract : The Overarching Tactical Wheeled Vehicle Study was conducted to determine the best mix of light, medium, and heavy tactical wheeled vehicles to meet Marine Corps tactical lift requirement in 2007. The study objectives included identifying the overall tactical wheeled vehicle lift requirement; developing alternative vehicle fleet mixes that met that requirement; comparing the costs, risks, and benefits of alternatives; and investigating issues associated with transitioning the tactical wheeled vehicle fleet to meet the tactical lift requirement in 2015. The study objectives were met, and the study provides recommendations both for the composition of the tactical wheeled vehicle fleet in 2007 and for steps needed to transition that fleet to 2015.
