Abstract
In future conflicts, the projected expenditure rates of artillery ammunition greatly exceed the ability of the Marine direct support artillery battery's ammunition transportation assets. It is therefore vital that the artillery battery commander be able to select the most effective mix of ammunition to carry on his organic transportation in a given tactical situation. Linear programing is a tool which the batten' commander can use to help solve this important problem. This thesis provides a linear program to assist him in this solution. In addition, with slight modification, this linear program can be of use to commanders at all levels of the Marine artillerv organization.
