A prototype MK19 MOD3 Grenade Machine Gun Support Kit was designed and developed for the M54A2 5-ton truck. This report details a unique test that was implemented in the U.S. Army Tank-Automotive Commands TACOM Physical Simulation Laboratory to reproduce the dynamic forces the machine gun kit normally encounters as the truck travels across terrain. The truck was simulated over selected terrains which produced the state variables of the fixture. Real- time simulation testing of prototype vehicle systems is a proven method of reducing costly development and field testing.
