Abstract:

A combat gaming method TRAX I for tactical training is presented. A one-sided controlled method of play is used in TRAX I to train leaders of tank platoons and crews on Division 86 platoon tasks. The game uses the Dunn-Kempf terrain board and components, with rules modified to speed play, simplify player procedures, and include some elements of combat not previously simulated. A controllers Guide, lesson plans for four exercises, and Division 86 mission- task crosswalks are provided to aid implementation of TRAX I in unit training.
