Abstract:

In December 1970, the Program Budget Division 464 established the Armys Study on Tactical Effectiveness Testing of Antitank Missiles TETAM. This study includes the generation of valid data using field experimentation and the use of these data in combat simulations. The combination of these two efforts will allow for the assessment of the effectiveness of three U.S. antitank missiles TOW, SHILLELAGH, and DRAGON and two foreign missiles the British SWINGFIRE and the French-German MILAN. This paper discusses the nature of the field experimentation being conducted and presents some results which have emerged.
