A real-time hybrid computer simulation was constructed for the study of fire-control pattern effectiveness in the defense of a destroyer against PT-boat attack. Different spotting procedures were tried over a repeatable maneuvering and non-maneuvering track in order to evaluate the relative results. The simulation also had a two-player gaming capability in order to evaluate the spotting procedures under full-scale evasion tactics. It was found that normal dispersion is more effective than random area fire for a low-speed maneuvering target, but area fire was more effective for a high-speed maneuvering target, with a random area fire the most effective.
