Mobility of military vehicles is a key element of military transport and it guarantees safety of the logistic system of the Armed Forces. The aim of this article is to compare medium-load and high-mobility means of transport belonging to the Polish Armed Forces and to identify the vehicle with the best parameters. The Analytic Hierarchy Process method was used for this, and this paper approximates its assumptions and process. Seven vehicles currently in use by the Polish Armed Forces were compared. As a result of the analysis, a hierarchy of the studied vehicles was established, ranking them from the highest to the lowest rated. The paper allows to assess whether the currently purchased Jelcz 442.32 is a good choice in the procuring policy of the Polish army.
