This paper describes an ongoing program to develop automated models (Red Agents) of plausible Soviet behavior for use in war games and simulations. It defines Red Agents and outlines objectives for their use. It reviews technical difficulties and challenges associated with reflecting accurate portrayals of plausible Soviet behavior at various levels of command. It reports that experience with prototype Red Agents suggests a profound potential for strategy analysis.
