Presents computed tables showing the single-shot probability of damage to a target as a function of yield and CEP, for a weapon bursting either at ground level or at an altitude that approximately maximizes the probability of blast damage. The tables cover 28 P-type and 12 Q-type targets of current military interest. Additional spot calculations involving yields, CEPs, and vulnerability numbers not listed in this report can be made using RAND's circular slide rule calculator R-1380. (See also R-1168, R-1168/1.)
