This report describes RAND's proposed approach for building an advanced "Red Agent" computer model to describe Soviet behavior in the context of an automated war game. The advanced (Mark III) Red Agent described in this report will use and extend state-of-the-art artificial intelligence techniques to produce an extremely flexible model able to reflect the best-estimate and contrary-view concepts on likely Soviet political-military behavior in major superpower conflicts.
