Description: The experience of the world developed countries, as well as its own national experience, testify to the essential importance in solving modern military conflicts of Special Operations Forces, that are capable of responding adequately to new challenges and threats to national and international security, not only in military, but also in peacetime, as well as abroad and in its own territory. The need to provide Special Operations Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine with wheeled vehicles, the wide range of existing in the world nomenclature and the specifics of the tasks entrusted on the Special Operations Forces, on the one hand, and the limited economic capabilities of Ukraine, on the other, allow to assert that for the Special Operations Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine it is expedient to have a rational nomenclature composition of wheeled vehicles, systematized and unified by functional and constructive features, parameters values, that provide perspective needs of Special Operations Forces. The article analyzes the existing scientific and methodological approaches to the justification of the type of wheeled vehicles, their defects are established. There are considered the problems of the development of wheeled vehicles for the needs of Special Operations Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, in accordance with the tasks specifics assigned to them. According to the results of the analysis of the existing scientific and methodological approaches to the justification of the type of wheeled vehicles, their imperfection was established. They do not allow to take into account the peculiarities of the use of wheeled vehicles by ambiguity in describing the process of their use, to determine the values of the main parameters depending on the tasks that are relied on wheeled vehicles of Special Operations Forces. Individual approaches are developed in the conditions of the administrative and command system of industry management and do not allow to take into account the transition to market conditions of the economy, the competitiveness of the creation of wheeled vehicles. Thus, there are a contradiction between the need for the development of wheeled vehicles for the needs of Special Operations Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the imperfection of existing scientific and methodological approaches to justify the technical parameters of wheeled vehicles. For its solution, there are justified necessity of developing a methodology for justifying the technical parameters of wheeled vehicles of the Special Operations Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which takes into account the shortcomings of existing scientific and methodological approaches.
