Mathematical models were presented for both the
traverse and elevation gun drive systems of a modern main
battle tank. The models were based upon the generation of
torque, through the gun drive gearboxes, arising from
collision engagement of the mating gears, and included a
full description of the non-linear effects of both backlash
and friction. [Continues.]
