In previous paper, we have presented available equations of motion for analyzing the plane motion of the couplenon-articulated tracked vehicles with tow-pins. In this paper, a mathematical analog for predicting the steerability of articulated tracked vehicles has been developed and computerized for numerical application. The analog contains all the basic parameters such as the vehicle characteristics and terrain factors related to steering problems of the vehicle. The accuracy of the analog in application has been verified by scale model tests and predictions proved quite satisfactory.
