Abstract:

A mobility analysis of the 12 vehicles which are used in the light attack battalion LAB was made in support of a study being conducted by the US Army Infantry School. The Army Mobility Model was used to exercise the vehicles in Mid-East and European scenarios which included operation on primary and secondary roads as well as on trails and cross country. Runs were made on dry, wet and snow covered surfaces to obtain data on maximum attainable speeds under each condition. Additional analyses were conducted to determine probability of being hit while crossing typical gaps and to examine logistic requirements of moving the LAB from point to point.
