Abstract:

This paper is a review and critique of the VECTOR-2 theater-level simulation model of conventional ground-air combat. Aspects of the model analyzed are organization and general structure, environment, resources and logistics, command, control and communication processes, attrition in ground combat, attrition in air-combat, movement of ground units and aircraft, intelligence and target acquisition, and computer-related aspects of the model. The paper emphasizes identification and understanding of assumptions underlying the mathematics of the model and especially of the attrition processes, with the objective of fostering better understanding of all models.
