Abstract:

This report presents a multiple-burst vehicle kill probability model. The methodology developed includes as kill mechanisms mechanical damage, ignition of flammable fluids from the puncture of reservoirs and lines by high energy projectiles, ignition of fluids which were spilled but no ignited on earlier rounds, and the ignition of detonation of stowed ammunition. The methodology is valid for any number of bursts, but the FORTRAN program included in the report is limited in applicability to at most three bursts. Keywords VAX 11780 computers.
