dc.description.abstractThis thesis develops a Lanchester-type force-on- force combat model simulating small -unit amphibious operations. The model commences with a ship-to-shore assault of aggressor forces mounted onooard Landing Vehicle Assault craft moving against a defensive force ashore. Once the ship-to-shore phase of combat is completed, the model continues to simulate land combat further inland between the assaulting aggressor forces and other defensive forces occupying key terrain. The main thrust of the thesis is to alleviate some of the problems associated with the inherent abstractness of Lanchester-type combat models; specifically, to develop "user-friendly" input-data and output structure, and more thorough documentation of the model's a'gorithms to provide a model which would be more easily understood ami utilized by students of combat modeling.en_US
