Description of the three-dimensional, three-body computer simulation model that is being developed at RAND for the analysis of air-to-air combat. The simulation is designed to permit analysis of close-in combat between highly maneuvering fighter aircraft armed with missiles and/or guns. Input techniques stress the ability to examine selected portions of well-defined combat situations; and output is designed to reveal, in detail, the operation and interaction of the vehicles. The examples are derived from the three-dimensional simulation and from simpler two-dimensional simulations used in support of the larger model.
