Abstract : A study was made to analyze cross-country surface vehicles for operations in South Vietnam. The study included the analysis of the terrain, various missions, and vehicles. Aircraft and ships were not included, but shallow-draft boats for operations in the delta area were. The objective of this study is to provide sufficient information on the capabilities of vehicles now in the military system, and those under development, to determine the type of new vehicles that would, in all probability, extend mobility for operations in South Vietnam over marginal terrain.
