Abstract : Current trends in tank development require a reduction in the number of crew members necessary to fight and maintain the vehicle for extended periods of time. Doctrinally, the capabilities and mission profiles of future tanks remain independent of crew size or configuration. This four-man analysis establishes a baseline by enumerating the tasks necessary to operate the current ABRAMS system. Its intent is to facilitate alignment of the MAMP technologies with the required crew operational tasks, so that the reduced crew can maintain the same level of performance as a four-man tank.
