Abstract : This report contains the analysis of the Mobile Strike Force (MSF) capability of performing operations other than war (OOTW) missions. This analysis supports the Prairie Warrior/Mobile Strike Force (PW/MSF) 1995 Advanced Warfighting Experiments (AWE) Organizational and Operational (O&O) analysis by addressing the question: "Is the Mobile Strike Force capable of performing OOTW missions such as peace enforcement in the European Command (EUCOM) and disaster relief such as Hurricane Andrew?" If an MSF task-organized for combat cannot perform OOTW operations without extensive augmentation or reorganization, the U.S. will have added another special purpose force that may not be able to contribute in the most frequent applications of U.S. military capability. This study considers how MSF could, or should, be involved with 2 of the 13 military OOTW situations: peace enforcement and disaster relief The Training and Doctrine Command's (TRADOC) Analysis Center (TRAC) assembled a group of subject-matter experts from proponent schools and centers to role-play the MSF staff TRAC used a seminar workshop to wargame a European peace enforcement scenario and a domestic disaster relief scenario.
