The publication presents an example of the application of the selected method of multi-criteria consideration. The purpose of the research undertaken was to identify the leading technical and technological features of oversized low-loader combinations used in the structures of the Polish Army and units of the United States Army, and to select the most favorable decision option using the ELECTRE I multi-criteria method. The research area analyzed in the publication is very important from the point of view of military units, with emphasis on the ever-increasing total weight and dimensions of this type of combat vehicles used by the Polish Army. The article reviews the literature on the essence and importance of multi-criteria methods. Identification of technical parameters of vehicles used in the transportation of militaria was made, taking into account their individual equipment, necessary during the organization of transportation. In the second part of the article, a multi-criteria analysis of vehicle assemblies used in the movement of the heaviest combat units was carried out using the ELECTRE I method. The analysis of the results shows that the parameters that had the greatest impact on the course of the study were: maximum engine torques and the permissible weight of the transported load. The study indicates that the most favorable solution turned out to be the vehicle combination offered by the American company Oshkosh.
