The purpose of this thesis is to mathematically model a duel between the armed helicopter and the tank. In addition to providing a parametric analysis of B. O. Koopmans classical Detection-Destruction Duel, two additional models were constructed and analyzed. All three models stem from stochastic versions of Lanchesters Equations but require that a unit first be detected before it is destroyed. The later two models are extensions of Koopmans model but provide for the unique capability of the helicopter to rapidly maneuver behind masking terrain, thus transitioning from the detected state back to the undetected state.
