Abstract : A crude model of the sortie capacity of a carrier-based attack squadron as a function of the number of aircraft and the number of maintenance personnel is developed. Fleet data for A4B squadrons is used to derive values for the model constants by multiple regression techniques. Variation of model parameters is employed to derive an approximation of a trade-off curve for numbers of aircraft and quantity of 'repair capacity' for a carrier-based A4B squadron. Some additional trade-offs implicit in the model are exhibited. (Author)
