This thesis presents the foundation for a stochastic simulation model that will represent dismounted infantry combat in urban terrain. The Simulation of Tactical Alternative Responses, STAR, ground-air combat model, which represents the parent simulation program for this proposed representation of urban combat, will be discussed in this document. Two state of the art urban combat models, MOBACS and URBWAR, will also be discussed. These two models were developed under contract for the United States Army but were never fully utilized as analytical tools. Certain aspects of these models lead to insightful approaches to the modelling of urban combat and these insights were instrumental in the development of this model. The major portions of this model are the representation of the terrain and the procedures for determining line of sight. Other areas of city fighting, e.g. movement and communications , were not modelled but will be discussed as future enhancements to this model.
