Abstract : Theoretical results are given for the probability of victory in a Lanchester model described by deterministic equations. The model is unusual in that both sides deploy only a constant fraction of their initial strengths actually in the field, the remainder being held in reserve and used to replace casualties. This phase continues until only one side can replace, and finally there may follow a phase which is in classical Lanchester tradition with no replacement possible.
