Abstract : The research effort was directed toward the design and development of a computer program for realistic, intelligently interactive tank warfare simulation. Included in the report are the functional description, flow diagrams and preliminary software specifications for such a program. The program offers a unique forward development in the realism of computer generated simulation in that the simulated tank it controls operates in an intelligently interactive manner in opposition to a human controlled tank. That is, the computer program selects moves and countermoves not according to a canned or predetermined routine but according to a rational evaluative criteria in response to action taken by the human trainee opponent.
