This thesis is an examination of the Air-to-Air engagement models in the Naval Warfare Gaming System installed at the Center for War Gaming, Naval War College, Newport, Rhode Island. Descriptive narrative and flow charts derived directly from the computer code are included. Qualitative evaluation of the models and their documentation is provided from both an operational and an analytical point of view. Problem areas and discrepancies are identified and specific recommendations for model improvement are discussed. The intent is to provide a course of action for the Center for War Gaming to use in modifying the existing Air-to-Air engagement routines in order to produce reasonable and more realistic outputs for war gaming. General recommendations concerning future development for additional modeling levels of detail are also discussed.
