This text presents various military applications of mathematical modeling in one reference source. The book can be used as either a desk reference or as a textbook for a course in mathematical... More > modeling. The text features mathematical modeling of combat phenomena, including physical models of attrition for passive targets, deterministic homogeneous and heterogeneous models of combat attrition, Stochastic models of combat attrition, models of search and detection, strategic and theater missile defense models, and models of operational reliability and availability. Mathematical applications include differentiation, integration, solution of differential equations, probability and statistics, and finite difference equations. Solutions are presented both analytically and numerically using Microsoft Excel® All Excel® spreadsheets used to create the graphs and solutions in the text can be downloaded at the author’s website www.simulation-educators.com/downloads.html.< Less
Mathematical Modeling of Warfare and Combat Phenomenon By Jeffrey Strickland

The primary goal of this book is to assist the student to develop the skills necessary to effectively employ the ideas of mathematics to solve military problems. At the simplest level I seek to... More > promote an understanding of why mathematics is useful as a language for characterizing the interaction and relationships among quantifiable concepts, or in mathematical terms, variables. The text explores models of terrorism, attrition, search, detection, missile defense, radar, and operational reliability Throughout the text I emphasize the notion of added value and why it is the driving force behind military mathematical modeling. For a given mathematical model to be deemed a success something must be learned that was not obvious without the modeling procedure. Very often added value comes in the form of a prediction. In the absence of added value the modeling procedure becomes an exercise not unrelated to digging a ditch simply to fill it back up again.< Less

This book details a design proposal for a Long-Range, High-Speed, Precision Strike Tactical Weapon (LRHSPSTW). The purpose of this weapon is to provide a fast, accurate, and powerful surgical strike... More > weapon with the goal of Denial of Combat Potential and Initiative. The missile also has the capability of responding quickly to time critical targets, such as mobile missile launchers or key enemy personnel, both of which may have very short dwell times. Many missile configurations were initially investigated. The design space allowed for variation in engine types (rocket powered, rocket powered with an aeropropulsive-assist, and full air-breathing), number of stages, and fuel type (solid or liquid). The resulting design is a combined rocket propelled first stage booster and a high-speed, air-breathing, payload delivery vehicle. Upon injection at altitude, the vehicle is powered by an air-breathing engine at Mach 5, which carries it to its target.< Less

This e-book is a reference guide on modern light tanks. It covers more than 20 combat vehicles from 12 countries and provides photos and basic information with specifications. It is easy to read and... More > will be useful for people interested in military hardware. It is a great first step in identifying and researching light tanks. Andrius Genys is one of the lucky few who have had the opportunity to turn his life-long interest and hobby into a career. From childhood his interest in tanks, military vehicles, weapons an other military-related equipment developed. At some point his interest in military transitioned from hobby to profession. Currently Andrius Genys is an author of 20 books and editor of Military-Today.com website. It is a bargain for rock solid information like this. Hope you can buy it!< Less

More > fleet that outnumbered them nearly three-to-one. The Alliance ships ceased rotation and their gravity cut out in preparation for combat: fighters were launched, and accelerated to meet the terran fighters between the opposing fleets. Hiranmayi saw the Alliance fighters coming and grinned; she had heard a lot about the great skill of Alliance razai pilots, but to her they seemed clumsy and slow. “Ready?” She asked Hank. “They’re dead.” He replied confidently. This is the story of the battle of Jura, one of the most important engagements of the Terra-Alliance war: it is a slice in the lives of the men and women who fought, and the glorious victory they gained.< Less
