The report gives the history of a group of extruded aluminum alloy landing mats which were tested as medium-duty mats. During the period January 1965-April 1968, accelerated traffic tests were conducted on several experimental versions of the mats at the U. S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station WES, Vicksburg, Miss. A small quantity of the last version designated XM18E1 was acquired from the 1.5 million sq ft production contract and tested at the WES. Integrated engineering and service tests were conducted at Dyess AFB, Tex., on the modified MX18-B version. The report describes the metamorphosis of the original experimental MX18-A to the present XM18 which has been type classified in the Federal Supply System. Author
