Abstract : The report presents a description of a highly aggregated ground-air conflict model, distinguished by ease of input and high computational speed, with instructions for operating the model, sample input formats, a listing of the program nomenclature, and an annotated program listing. TAGS-V input parameters fall into 3 categories: (1) force size and effectiveness factors; (2) aircraft allocation by mission, and (3) a set of historically based empirical factors taht characterize casualties and movement of ground warfare, any of which can be changed as a function of the value of any other during the course of the conflict.
