Abstract:

The Code 50 Nuclear Exchange Model is a war game model produced by the LAMBDA Corporation. This research contribution derives and explains the basic mathematical models used in the computer programs of that model, including models of missile and bomber penetration as well as damage calculation, weapon allocation, and kill probability models. Model implementation and integration into the Code 50 program are also demonstrated.
