Abstract:

The performance of the HMMWV is analyzed and compared to the vehicles which it will replace. A generic HMMWV is postulated. The vehicles are assessed for off-road and on-road performance in Europe and the Mid-East. The performance criteria are Speed profiles, percentages of total terrain area in which the vehicles were immobilized, factors using immobilization, factors limiting speed, vehicle acceleration, speed on slopes and stability during turns on side slopes. Additionally air transportability of the vehicles was evaluated.
