Abstract : A computer simulation model of a tank Vs tank battle scenario was earlier developed and programmed on PRIME-750. The model has been refined and improved further in terms of organisation, terrain and tactics. The present paper describes the following features, which have been incorporated into the model: (a) units in formation (b) physical terrain features in the form of sand dunes (c) tactical maneuvers and (d) real-time graphic display of the whole combat action. In accordance with the scenario, improved criteria for maneuvers bypassing obstacles, search, and fire have been introduced.
