Abstract:

This thesis presents an operational Lanchester-type model of small-unit amphibious operations. This relatively simple model has been developed to demonstrate the basics of model building to the beginning student interested in amphibious warfare. The model is a time sequenced, deterministic, force-on-force combat model that is implemented on a digital computer. A brief discussion of considerations for modeling amphibious operations is given. The details of the model are presented for a specific amphibious warfare scenario. Additionally, a computer terrain-contour-line plotting program is provided to assist the combat modeler to fit a parameterized-terrain to real terrain. Author
