Abstract : To win the AirLand Battle we must achieve a qualitative superiority. The Warsaw Pact nations has achieved a quantative superiority and possess approximate technical equivalence in basic military hardware. Superior combat performance can be achieved through repetitive Tactical Engagement Simulation training using MILES until objective standards are reached. Few units now employ MILES as it was desinged to be used. Strapping on MILES does not ensure realism, however, realism is vital for successful tactical training. Research has revealed the Tactical Engagement Simulation trained Light Infantry platoons had a 30 to 1 greater chance of winning an offensive mission than did less well trained platoons opposed by well trained defenders. Similarly trained Combined Arms trams ha a 15 to 1 greater chance of winning an offensive mission, and the OPFOR Motorized Rifle Regiment at the National Training Center (also well trained with Tactical Engagment Simulation) had a 5 to 1 greater chance of winning an offensive mission. Repetitive Tactical Engagement Simulation training, to criterion perofrmance, with the rules of engagement enforced will greatly enhance the probability of winning the AirLand Battle.
