M-Day-Model a Highly Aggregated Model to Determine Balanced Force Reductions

  • G. Locke


The main aim of the model is to calculate the relative value of forces present in the combat area after D-day compared to forces present at D-day. Therefore, the model should better be named D-day-model instead of M-day-model. The present name was established historically. The purpose of the model is, among others, to achieve a common basis for the calculation of the value of dislocated stationed forces and indigenous cadre strength forces. The geographical asymmetry concerning the dislocated stationed forces of the US and the USSR manifests itself in different times for redeployment into the combat area after the commencement of a conflict.
