Abstract : The manual describes briefly the Simulation for the Assessment of TActical Nuclear Weapons (SATAN II). The SATAN 2 simulation is a model for the two-sided, open play of a tactical nuclear weapons conflict on simulated battlefields. When provided by the user with the required input data, the SATAN 2 computer programs will automatically: Deploy forces; acquire targets; allocate nuclear weapons to fire on those targets; assess the effects of those fires; perform counter-battery operations; and, interface with A Tactical, Logistical, and Air Simulation (ATLAS). The SATAN 2 Model is programmed in FORTRAN 4 for use on the IBM 360/50/65 computer. (Author)
