Abstract : Annex 1 (Volume 2) of the MAF Fire Support Study Final Report presents the methodology used in this analysis of Marine Amphibious Force (MAF) fire support requirements. The methodology is based on a mix evaluation approach which leads to the definition of a least cost MAF mix of fire support weapon systems. Included in Annex 1 is a description of the simulation models and mathematical techniques employed, among which are the Landing Force War Game, Requirements Model, Fire Support Simulation and Mix Preference Program. The measures of effectiveness used in the Study are also discussed. (Author)
