The current work was carried out during the continuation of work on improving the three-dimensional tactical diagrams calculation methodology, and is aimed at describing of the methodology for creating of geometric and computational models of military vehicles armored corps. The paper presents requirements for geometric and computational models, a mathematical and information model for hull of combat vehicles that are in service with the Armed Forces of Ukraine describing, as well as the results of its creating. Also the results of a comparison of the bod hullof BTR-80, BTR-3, BTR-4 vehicles belonging to the same class are given. Comparison of the models of the hulls according to the classical and the proposed method is given. The use of the proposed methodology, mathematical model and developed design models will allow to obtain more accurate results in the construction of three-dimensional tactical diagrams, and, as a consequence, to conduct a more accurate and adequate analysis of the level of protection of lightly armored vehicles from the destruction of small arms. The proposed methodology, in contrast to existing ones, will allow further to take into account the availability of additional reservations and to analyze not only the machine as a whole, but its individual elements and parts, which makes it possible to solve the task of providing the required level of security in a more precise and flexible manner. In conjunction with previously published materials on modeling the geometry of the terrain, accounting for additional reservations, and the principles of determining tactical solutions, you can go directly to the description of the complex mathematical model, which will be published later.
