Abstract:

A human factors, training and safety evaluation of the FIST-V was conducted at Fort Sill, OK, Sep - Dec 1982 in conjunction with the FIST-V OT II. This report of this evaluation identified problems in the area of man-machine interface, safety and training that significantly detract from the combat effectiveness of the FIST-V. It is concluded that constraints imposed by the requirement to use the current TOWM113APC vehicle as the basic vehicle preclude the correction of many of those problems. However, the report points out other deficiencies that are not difficult to correct or improve.
