Abstract:

IDAHEX is an interactive computer model of two-sided conventional land warfare. It keeps the players informed of the situation and accepts their instructions to their forces. Units can move by land, sea, or air. A units movement rate is variable, depending upon its posture, the conditions of its movement, and the adequacy of transport. Attrition in engagements is assessed by a heterogeneous Lanchester square process. Air support can be played. Supplies consumption can be assessed, and logistics can be played. The model recognizes severed lines of retreat and lines of supply and imposes appropriate consequences. The documentation consists of three volumes 1 A Guide for Potential Users 2 Game Designers Manual 3 Players Manual. Author
