In this paper, a numerical model of tracked vehicle with a simplified suspension and a winch forcing movement at a constant speed of 2 m / s is presented. The simplified vehicle body was created in the CAD environment, the suspension model, dry and wet obstacle, as well as the winch system and material models, were created in the LS PREPOST. The body of the vehicle was treated as a rigid, mounted by springs and dampers on tracks, the solid element was replaced by a shell element with assigned moments of inertia and mass in the node located in the centre of gravity of the vehicle. The characteristics of the resultant contact force of vehicle travel on the rigid ground for a dry and water obstacle are presented.
