This thesis investigates the Counterforce Potentials model as a tool for decision makers in force mix analysis. All theoretical forms and submodules methodology flow within the model are reviewed, criticized, and analyzed for the model's use in force mix analysis. As a linear model for imputing values to weapon systems it is compared to other linear model forms currently used in large scale models. Numerical sensitivity analysis is applied to answer the key questions of the model's characteristics and reaction to various input changes. The analysis reveals that the model has significant flaws which make it questionable for use in force mix analysis.
