Abstract:

Obstacle Planning Simulation OPS Version 1.1 was developed as a pilot model to demonstrate the benefits of using simulation programs on PLATO to teach combat engineer tactics. OPS 1.1 is an interactive, map-based, two-phase video game for a single player that models the effects of a combat engineer modifications to terrain via a limited set of obstacles. In phase 1, the player specifies and implements an obstacle plan of hisher own design in two to four blocks of time, each block representing 4 hr of real time in which to work on a barrier plan. In phase 2, the player becomes a passive observer as an enemy mechanized infantry division attacks the friendly reinforced mechanized infantry brigade defensive position the player has fortified.
