Abstract:

The Army Concept Team in Vietnam evaluated the XM163 VULCAN Air Defense System to determine its effectiveness in a combat role. The 180 day Department of the Army evaluation began on 26 November 1968. Because of the tactical situation the VULCANs were retained in RVN for an additional 45 days. The evaluation terminated on 20 April 1969. The evaluation was oriented toward a ground role, and the air defense role should targets of opportunity appear. There was no enemy air activity during the evaluation.
