A synthetic history of vehicular activity in the rear area of a Soviet tank army during a five-day offensive against U.S. V Corps is developed and described. The history consists of detailed records of 2088 movement events involving 11,266 vehicles. Vehicles are identified in terms of 15 types. The record of each event includes the location of its origin and destination with respect to the FEBA, its departure and arrival times, its composition by numbers and types of vehicles and the kind of unit involved in the move. Various statistical representations of the history are presented. Conversion of the history to a computer model of vehicular activity is described.
