Since World War II, the United States Army has been fielding combat vehicles with greater mobility, firepower, and survivability. The tactics and doctrine of the Army have become more offensively oriented to improve the utilization of these new combat systems' capabilities. The Warsaw Pact forces have been making similar improvements in their equipment and doctrine. While these advances have been made in the areas of combat vehicles, the logistic vehicles tasked to provide the logistic support for the combat vehicles and the AirLand Battle doctrine have not changed since the 1940s. The modern Army is still supported by wheeled, soft-skinned vehicles similar to the vehicles are lacking the mobility of modern fighting vehicles, and do not provide protection to the crew and cargo from artillery and small arms fire. The United States Army needs improved logistic vehicles if it to be successful on the modern lethal battlefield. Based upon this concept, this thesis will analyze two different logistic vehicles and five doctrines for support of the modern Army.
