Abstract
Hybrid-electric vehicle technologies have gained significant traction in the passenger vehicle market in recent years. The combination of efficient electric drive with the range and power density of internal combustion fuels provides significant advantages. In a military context, a hybrid-electric drive for off-road vehicles might provide reduced fuel consumption, silent drive/silent watch, camp power, and vehicle reconfiguration for improved payload and crew protection. This paper highlights recent prototype hybrid light tactical vehicles, and discusses the technological limitations.
