Abstract : Under certain conditions, the re-supply capability of a combatant force may be limited by the characteristics of the transportation network over which supplies must flow. Air strikes by an opposing force may be used to reduce the capacity of that network; the effects of such strikes vary for differing missions and targets. With only a limited number of sorties available, the strike planner must decide which targets to hit, and with how many sorties. A computational procedure is developed for determining the optimum strike plan for minimizing network flow capacity. (Author)
