Abstract : The major attrition processes (direct-fire, artillery, on-station helicopter, system-on-system acquisition) in the Eagle combat model had never had an independent: verification and validation (V&V) of the relevant code. Using Army Pam 5-11 accepted V&V methods, Eagle code was verified and validated to the Vector-In-Commander (VIC) model. All these functional areas were verified. Some problems were found, but corrected. With the code changes made and exceptions noted in the body of this report, Eagle's code does function as intended. System-on-system acquisition; direct-fire, and on-station helicopter attrition validate to the most up-to-date VIC (versions 5 and 6). Eagle's artillery attrition validates to VIC version 3.0. It needs to be updated to the latest Artillery School and AMSAA approved artillery algorithms.
