Abstract:

The purpose of the study was to find out from the user what significant human engineering problems with the M-48 tank were being encountered. In addition, an attempt was made to discover field expedients employed by the crewmen to solve these problems and to elicit any suggestions for pertinent design improvements on the tank. Thus, the liaison team has attempted to serve as a middleman, to inform the human engineering research personnel and designers what difficulties the users are having with equipment that the Ordnance Corps created for them. It is the opinion of the liaison team that, on the whole, the troops are well satisfied with the performance and handling of the tank. Author
