Abstract:

This study establishes a mobility performance prediction data base for towed and self-propelled artillery and related vehicles for several terrain and weather conditions using the Army mobility model AMM and a simple model for making GONOGO predictions termed the JIFFY mobility model. Performance predictions are in terms of a percentage of a country with a given probability of GO b speed profile and statistical diagnostics for primary roads, secondary roads, trails, and off-road c performance index d average speed for supply network e selected mobility level rating speed f vehicle group performance and g time to complete special artillery missions. This study does not attempt to analyze the mobility performance predictions data base, but does suggest methods or parameters which are considered as best for comparing the relative mobility of a the prime movers, b the prime mover-towed artillery and self-propelled artillery, nd c group performance of selected vehicles.
