Abstract : This thesis documents the design and implementation of a simulation of the Ship-To-Shore movement phase of an amphibious assault in a modern, object-oriented, process-based simulation language called MODSIM II by CACI corporation of La Jolla, CA. The main intent of the simulation is to build a model that will allow the Requirements, Plans and Programs Branch (RP and P), Headquarters, United States Marine Corps (HQMC) to quantitatively compare proposed replacements for the assault aircraft and amphibians currently used in the conduct of the ship-to-shore phase of the amphibious assault. Candidates from the Medium Lift Requirement (MLR) program are compared to identify that mix of aircraft which provides the most rapid build-up of combat power ashore.
