Abstract:

This report develops a modern naval combat model. It deals with naval surface missile combat and models the attrition as a force-on-force process described in discrete time steps, or slaves. The degradation of each force is expressed in terms of remaining staying power and combat power in both opponents. It is based on Lt. Bealls model, but since it deals with missile warfare it incorporates several human factors that affect the outcome of a naval battle specifically scouting effectiveness, leadership, morale, and training.
