Abstract : The report contains a description of the latest modification of a highly aggregated computer model of ground-air warfare, originally developed in the early 50s for Rand studies of military conflict in the European theater. TAGS is especially valuable for preliminary explorations of broad parametric variations, prior to the use of more detailed and costly analytic aids. New provisions permit the model to emulate the results of more highly detailed computer models. All aspects of the current version of TAGS are briefly described and complete operating instructions are given.
