Abstract : The design of military vehicles is a rather complicated mixture of many technical activities. In each new development of a tank, truck or jeep, a substantial amount of engineering ideas are required to be blended together to bring forward vehicles possessing features and merit of advanced capability. While each vehicle development is a separate and distinct program, there are development goals and problems that continually reappear and appear to be common. For example, it is always important to create a good suspension system and it is equally important to provide a dynamically stable vehicle. The Suspension System is vital for it determines the vehicle ride and vibration behavior and it also establishes the tolerable speed limit of travel over various terrain surfaces, both for the man and the machine.
