Abstract:

THIS REPORT DESCRIBES THE SYNTHESIS OF A Mobile Missile Brigade MMB, designed to assist indigenous forces in the defense of Turkish Thrace against an armored invasion from the north. The focus of the organizational synthesis is on rationalizing the rate of fire incorporated in the brigade with respect to the target rate exhibited by a detailed model of enemy vehicular activity in the hostile rear. The organization of the MMB is developed around a notional surface-to-surface missile system capable of engaging vehicular targets with conventional munitions at ranges up to 200 km from the firing position. The combat power of the MMB consists of 54 launchers, grouped into 9 batteries of 6 launchers each. It is estimated, roughly, that the MMB would include about 2000 personnel.
