An advanced computer model has been developed to study the effects of a sea-launched ballistic missile SLBM attack on targets consisting of a flushing aircraft force. The AFWL code is believed to be the only one possessing all of the following features 1 the determination of the SLBM laydown against a mixed aircraft force for instance, bombers and tankers 2 the automatic consideration of differing aircraft hardnesses, flyout profiles, level-off altitudes, and kill values 3 the treatment of an SLBM attack by multiple types of SLBMs, accounting for differing missile trajectories, yields, launch intervals, reliabilities, and numbers of missiles per submarine 4 automated relocation of the submarines andor the aircraft, if desired, to enhance the goals of each and 5 thermal as well as overpressure kills, accounting for such additional nuclear effects parameters as detonation altitude, haze level, water vapor, visibility, and albedo, through the use of the most current advanced nuclear effects codes developed by AFWL.
