Abstract : This thesis presents a number of Nuclear Targeting and Effects program that is intended for inclusion in the Simulation of Tactical Alternative Responses (STAR) combat model. It is presented as a stand alone program, written in SIMSCRIPT, which can be easily modified as a subroutine for any high resolution combat model requiring tactical nuclear effects simulation. When presented with a group of targets which are deemed suitable for attack by tactical nuclear weapons, the program will select units to fire, select proper yields for multiple yield weapon systems and assess casualties among Armor and Infantry within the target area.
