Abstract : The primary purpose of the Tank Exchange Model (TXM) is to provide a methodology to compare two or more tanks in terms of vulnerability and lethality in engagements with other tanks and antitank weapons. The TXM does not make this comparison directly, but permits the user to separately determine the effectiveness of both tanks in a range of situations. Although the range of situations is limited it is believed to be sufficient to provide realistic comparisons.
