Abstract:

For this research, two battle scenarios for exercising division staffs were developed. The scenarios are set in Western Europe, employ Army units under current J-series i.e., October 1986 tactical organization, reflect Air-Land Battle doctrine, and incorporate current Soviet doctrine and organization. The scenarios support division-level tactical planning in the operations G3 and intelligence G2 staff areas. Information is provided to describe the intent, organization, and content of the scenarios. Typical staff products developed under the effort intelligence estimate, operations estimate, and operations order are described and suggested as comparisons for evaluation when the scenarios are used. With the information available in this report, the value of these scenarios can be determined for various, potential applications. Keywords Command and control systems.
