This paper describes RUNBST, a RAND Monte Carlo simulation designed to determine (1) the expected fraction of the time that bombs dropped from a single aircraft will cut the target runway in a single pass and (2) the probabilities of achieving two independent cuts as a function of the number of aircraft assigned to the attack. The paper also compares RUNBST to related simulations, such as RUNWAY CUTTING III.
