Abstract : This Note describes the second-generation 'Mark II' version of the Rand Strategy Assessment Center's Red and Blue Agents. These agents are models representing the behavior of the Soviet Union and the United States in an automated political-military game. The Note documents the technical features of the Mark II Red and Blue Agent models; provides a User's Manual; describes model operations with an example from a typical RSAC war game; and explains the relationships between Mark I, II, and III systems. The Note is predominantly technical, and has more to say about the structure of the models than about their basis in political or military science or about the rationale for the variables used or excluded in Mark II analysis.
