In an effort to analyze small unit fire and maneuver tactics, Lanchester's Square Law is used as the basis for a model relating major combat variables of infantry engagements. An investigation encompassing 90 different computer battle simulations with varying levels of attacking force size, rush distance length, number of units composing the attacking force, and defending force fire distribution is reported. Conclusions of the results of the battle simulations and suggested extensions of the model are discussed
