A Study on Fire Power Performances of Combat Vehicles with Suspension Systems


When the combat vehicle runs on an off-road, the vertical displacement occurs. This vertical displacement variation affects fire power performance for a weapon system mounted on the combat vehicle. We focus on the hit probability which is one of the fire power performances. The combat vehicle is simulated with a quarter car system. We measure the vertical displacement using the quarter simulation model. The passive suspension system and the active suspension system with the use of the linear state feedback system are considered. The active suspension system with the feedback control has better performances for the hit probability than the passive suspension system has.
