Surface Vehicle Test Case- VT4/MBT3000

This test case is based on the Surface Vehicle Template 881C structure, weight distributions, and manufacturing complexities. All hardware objects are scaled to the weight of the VT-4 tank. No changes are made to the software objects of the template. This example uses production schedule dates and quantities of the VT-4 program. No attempt has been made to differentiate among the various models of the vehicle nor has any attempt been made to simulate the multiple production lots of the program. Therefore, this example should be viewed as an illustration of how the surface vehicle template can be used to produce a rough cost estimate of a known surface vehicle program.
