Abstract
A classic example of the directed fire model of combat, Lanchester Square Law, is the Battle of Trafalgar. In classical naval warfare, two fleets would sail parallel to each other and fire broadside at one another until one fleet was annihilated or gave up (see Figure 1). The white fleet represents the British and the Black fleet represents the French-Spanish fleet.
