Abstract : Through interviews with drivers and instructors of the YPR-765, an inventory was made of view problems with driving under armour. Problems with attitude and operational comfort were discussed too. An additional field experiment demonstrated that longitudinal and transversal vehicle positioning by beginning drivers was worse if executed under armour. Suggestions for improvement are given. The problems signalled appear to conflict with the operational demands put on an Infantry Battle Vehicle (IBV). Therefore, it is recommended to take the improvements suggested into consideration while drafting the program of demands of the IBV.
