Data reduction and preparation of plates and tables were accomplished by Mr. T. D. Hutto under the direction of Mr. Decell, who performed the data analysis and prepared this report. This is Report 3 of a series entitled "Mobility Exercise A (MEXA) Field Test Program."* The others are as follows: Report 1, "Summary"; Report 2, "Soft-Soil Performance of the MEXA Test Beds"; Report 4, "Performance of the MEXA and Three Military Vehicles in Selected Natural Terrains."
