Evaluation of the Landing Vehicle Assault (LVA) Over-Land Performance 780127

Evaluation techniques have been developed to insure that the new U. S. Marine Corps Landing Vehicle Assault (LVA)(1) will have an over-land performance at least equal to the Landing Vehicle, Tracked, Personnel, Model 7 (LVTP-7) which it will replace. Operations over roads, trails, cross-country, obstacles and across inland water barriers are considered for a specified mission scenario. The Cone Index and the Bekker Systems can be used independently or sequentially to represent soil strengths. A wide variety of performance data is available through an output processor. This ranges from over-all speed-made-good for the entire scenario to motion resistance, sprocket loadings, speed, fuel consumption, etc., for each scenario segment.
