The paper pertains to matters related to the quantification of functional availability of military vehicles, with reference to exploitation intensity and reliability aspects. The conducted exploitation research paved the way for elaborating methods of determining functional availability for military vehicles, in particular focusing on exploitation intensity and reliability. The essential research was conducted using the developed mathematical model based on the probabilistic, stochastic Markov

In the course of the research, which enabled the authors to estimate the functional availability value, four-layered probes of the military vehicles were used (different types and makes), from the second exploitation phase, with varied mileage from the beginning of the exploitation and average mileage per year.
