The 1973 Yom Kipper War emphasized that adequate field training was essential for an effective modern mechanized army. There evolved, therefore, the requirement 1 to fire the .50 caliber M2HB and M85 machine guns during training exercises. As a result, blank ammunition for .50 cal weapons is currently being developed as part of the Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System MILES program. This paper describes a computer model which would aid in the design of the ammunition and Blank Firing Attachment BFA for these systems. Author
