Summary note
"The Army's medium and heavy tactical wheeled vehicle (TWV) fleets are critical to sustaining its global operations: these are the vehicles that move supplies and equipment to and around the battlespace. The Army has maintained a significant program and made major investments in its TWV fleets because they are such critical assets. The Army's TWV strategy is a key element toward managing its TWV investments prudently. To update the TWV strategy effectively, the Army must be able to make informed decisions that are dependent on a clear understanding of how many of what types of vehicles it currently has and some indication of their age and condition. This study produced status profiles of the Army's medium and heavy TWV fleets. The status profiles show how many medium and heavy TWVs of each type the Army has and the years of useful life remaining for each group of vehicles."--P. [4] of cover.
