Abstract : In order to develop combat vehicles that will achieve a three-to-one kill ratio, the Dynamic Capability Development Tank Program, D2T, was created. This program is intended to address the component design of the combat vehicle, i.e., the ballistic computer, range finder, target tracker, etc. However, the D2T Program will not answer the overall question: What is the system's probability of survival under saturation attack? This question can only be answered by formulation of a viable 'Combat vehicle Support Plan.' This paper provides a methodology for development of such a plan.
