Abstract: This report describes a method for application of the WES VCI/RCI criteria to helicopters and related ground support equipment. Through the use of ground mobility submodels developed by WES and the soil strength requirements determined for one helicopter (CH-47A), comparative performance capabilities are determined on the basis of wheel sizes and loads and sinkage into the ground. Estimates are made of the performance requirements of the AH-56A helicopter, and the application of drawbar-pull capabilities of selected ground vehicles to towing the AH-56A are presented.
