This paper presents a new model of combat attrition between attackers and defenders. The model represents cases where the defenders are protecting a passive target and the attackers are attempting to penetrate the defenders to attack the target. A complete set of assumptions and rigorous derivations of the relevant attrition processes are given. Interpretations of the assumptions, extensions,and computational aspects are considered. A taxonomy relating this attrition model with several other attrition equations is also given.
