Abstract: Data required for each vehicle as input to the AMC-71 Mobility Model are contained in Table Al. Photos of the vehicles are shown in Figure 3 in the main text. To verify the performance predictions from AMC-71 Ground Mobility Model satisfactorily, a variety of sites in which to conduct tests to meet the requirements of the validation program were required. Test sites were selected from the results of reconnaissance of several military reservations and other sites with a variety of terrain conditions, accessibility, and proximity to maintenance areas. Sites selected were at Fort Sill, Oklahoma; Yuma Proving Ground, Arizona; Eglin AFB, Florida; Houghton, Michigan; and Fort Knox, Kentucky. Locations of the traverses and single terrain units tested are shown in Figures 4-9 in the main text. A general description of each of the test sites is given in the following paragraphs, and a profile with photos of each of the test traverses is shown in Plates Bl-Bl7. The terrain units described are those that were outside the traverses. All soil types described in the following paragraphs are in terms of the Unified Soil Classification System (USCS).
