The MAGTF Tactical Warfare Simulator (MTWS) is a multi-sided computer based gaming system, currently in use by the Marine Corps. Marine operations typically involve movement over land, sea, and air, and sustained operations often involve interaction with other services. MTWS's complexity supports the joint warfare nature of Marine operations. This capability and complexity makes it ideally suited for an academic environment, and at the Naval Postgraduate School MTWS introduces students to a current service simulation, reinforces student course work, and facilitates student research and experimentation. The drawback of a system so complex, though not difficult to learn how to use, is that MTWS is not always intuitive. While extensive documentation exists to support the system, it is for experienced users of the system. This thesis is tailored toward beginning users, no matter their level of operational experience, and will bridge the gap to the advanced documentation. It will provide an overview of the system, explain graphical user interfaces (GUIs), provide instructions to develop and utilize units in the simulation, and provide reference charts for current U.S. weapon systems
