The manual describes briefly the Simulation for the Assessment of TActical Nuclear Weapons SATAN 2. The SATAN 2 simulation is a model for the two-sided, open play of tactical nuclear weapon exchanges on simulated battle-fields. When provided by the user with the required input data, the SATAN 2 computer programs will automatically deploy forces, acquire targets, allocate nuclear weapons to fire on those targets, assess the effects of those fires, perform computer-battery operations, and interface with a tactical,logistical, and air simulation. The SATAN 2 Model is programmed in FORTRAN 4 for use on the IBM 36050 computer. Author
