Abstract : This analysis was done for the US Army Training and doctrine Command (TRADOC) Battle Laboratory Integration and Concepts Directorate (BLITCD) in support of the Prairie Warrior/Mobile Strike Force 95 Advanced Warfighting Experiment. The purpose of this analysis was to extend the investigation of the MSF organizational and operational (O&O) concepts beyond the single O&O concept examined in the Prairie Warrior (PW) 95 student exercise. The combat scenario was based on CGSC's Northeast Asia (NEA) instructional campaign plan. The simulation was run in the Vector-in-Commander (VIC) model. The MSF was tailored to emphasize each of the three warfighting characteristics of survivability, lethality and tempo. The PC-based force tailoring tools, Force Package Logic Utility System (Force-PLUS) and Sufficiency Criteria Realignment Adjustment Processor (SCRAP) were used in the tailoring process. The results show the division level MSF to be an highly lethal and survivable unit, decisively defeating a heavy corps mposed of one armored, six mechanized and two self-propelled artillery brigades, a total of nine brigades.
