Abstract

A mathematical model is presented and applied to investigate the relationship between the automotive performance and manoeuvring of an armoured vehicle and the probability of its being hit by tank gunfire. The model takes into consideration the type of ammunition, the characteristics of the fire control system and the automotive route of the target. Three cases were examined: a stationary target, an accelerating target and a target moving over a winding course at a constant speed. The model has been calibrated to fit a set of experimental results.
