The thesis analyzes deliberate attack missions conducted at the U.S. Army National Training Center (NTC) and checks for relationships between ground force concentration at a battle point of critical attrition and a mission measure of effectiveness (MOE). This analysis should facilitate the development of deliberate attack mission training standards and the monitoring of unit performance in the area of force concentration or massing of combat power. Graphical methods and analytic techniques are developed to describe a point of critical attrition in the battle and various measures of force concentration. The thesis also describes the tank and mechanized infantry task force, the NTC environment and data collection characteristics, accuracy screening techniques for NTC data, and the deliberate attack mission.
