A detailed event type simulation of the Supporting Arms Phase of an amphibious operation was developed. The model was developed for research use in making studies concerning the supporting arms phase of an amphibious operation during the pre-D-day and D-day pre-H-hour time period in a limited war setting, and for Fleet Operators use to determine supporting arms requirements for an amphibious assault. Programmed for the IBM 7030 STRETCH digital computer, the model simulates the naval gunfire and air support portions of the amphibious operation. Provisions are being made to simulate attrition to friendly attack aircraft. The model is currently operational and provides for considerable flexibility of input data and for a wide variety of studies and applications.
