This thesis develops a computer simulation for modeling the logistical support of multiple naval battle groups in a peacetime or wartime setting. The simulation model, written in Microsoft Visual Basic Version 5.0, allows the user to create any number of naval battle groups containing multiple combatants that are located by latitude and longitude. Each battle group operates with one or two assigned station supply ships, i.e., a fast combat support (AOE) ship, or a fleet oiler (AO) ship and ammunition (AE) ship, respectively. Additionally, the user can create any number of Forward Logistics Base (FLB) ports and Continental United States (CONUS) ports, each having any number and type of shuttle supply ships assigned to them. Every ship and port has four major supply categories: F44 (aviation fuel), F76 (diesel fuel marine), ammunitions, and stores. The combatant's supplies are consumed over the specified time frame based on a randomly selected F76 rate, a fixed user inputted stores rate and, if desired, multiple user inputted F44 and ammunition rates. The multiple user inputted F44 and ammunition consumption rates capability enables the user to model a naval battle based on any previously developed Tactical Warfare (TACWAR) or similar scenario involving aircraft carrier and/or amphibious battle groups
