Abstract : In the Equal Cost Firepower study conducted by Research Analysis Corporation for ACSFOR in 1971 and 1972, a technique was developed for using the results of the CARMONETTE simulation for small unit battles to assess the outcomes of battle in the Division Battle Model (DBM) games. This technique was designed to replace the classical firepower score technique of assessing losses in war games. The results of 518 CARMONETTE replications were used as inputs to a regression analysis to derive the coefficients for a set of assessment equations used in the DBM ground combat routine. This approach was successful and resulted in creditable casualty assessments in the DBM games in which the losses on each side were a function of the mixes of opposing weapons, tactics, and other factors considered.
