Allocation of imperfect weapons for attack and defense of point targets
Tysver, Joseph Bryce
MetadataShow full item record
The report investigates the effect of imperfect attack and defense weapons on damage estimates and preferred strategies for a set of point targets. The damage estimation model used incorporates weapon success probabilities for both defense and attack weapons. The effect of these probabilities on expected target damage and, subsequently, on weapon allocation preference by both opponents are examined. A Proportional Defense Model is used for illustration and some modification to the model proposed. (Author)
