Abstract : The Marine Corps has identified a likelihood of combat in an urban environment during the mid-range time frame. The capability to apply force in such areas is important and may be the key to achieving political and military objectives in a given circumstance. A requirement exists, for employing amphibious forces against urban targets located along the littorals of the world. This analysis was undertaken in support of a program establishment to identify logistic requirements peculiar to an amphibious assault into a highly urbanized area. The area designated is SYNTHETIC CITY (Syn City), a map product and data base which provide an unclassified urban setting for examining tactical and logistical problems. Volume I of this investigation is a technical report in which the combat service support functions are defined in relation to their applicability to urban combat. This examination is based upon a family of operations plans, with their associated logistic annexes, having as their objective the seizure, isolation, or control of SYN City. Those plans comprise Volume II of this analysis.
