Abstract : A model is presented which is a computer simulation of a duel involving two helicopter sections, a scout and an attack section, and an armored mobile land target. Terrain features are considered in the model by using a least square polynomial to represent the terrain environment. The model was constructed in an attempt to include the possible effects of terrain on tactics used by the combatants in the duel. The computer program, logic and model results are included. (Author)
