Abstract : This paper presents the development of an animated graphical computer simulation of an air defense scenario. In particular, the air defense scenario consists of a variable number of attackers, pictured as airplanes and a variable number of defenders, pictured as air defense artillery tanks. The simulation allows choosing between two different target assignment protocols. Protocol 1 simulates a random to shoot at. Protocol 2 simulates a controlled target assignment, where the defenders are assigned to a target and continue to track the target until a kill is made. The simulation is written in BASICA, uses an IBM Personal Computer (IBM PC) and requires a color monitor and a color/graphics adapter card. Keywords: Graphic, Simulation, Basic language, Air defense, Combat model.
