Abstract: The Army Mobility Model (AMM) was used to establish for each study vehicle the on- and off-road mobility performance for dry, wet, and snow surface conditions in the HIMO West Germany and the dry, wet, and sand surface conditions for the HIMO Mid-East study areas. The mobility performance was expressed in terms of speed profiles for each surface condition of primary roads, secondary roads, and off road. The mobility rating speed was also established for each study vehicle at each surface condition ror the five tactical mobility levels of the study areas. These data were then used to compare the mobility of the M578 Light Recovery Vehicle towing selected vehicles with the mobility of the M88 Medium Recovery Vehicle towing the same vehicles.
