The doctrinal basis for high mobility vehicles in forward area units is found in a series of Army studies accomplished in the period 1959-1969. This presentation will feature the highlights of these studies and include a description of the high mobility vehicles which will be entering Army inventories in the 1970's. A description of the mobility requirements of Army units involved in combat, combat support, and combat service support will be included. Reference will be made to the Materiel Options of Land Combat System for Operations in the 1990's, produced by the USACDC Institute of Land Combat with emphasis on objectives in the functional areas of mobility and service support.
