ABSTRACT

Combat with the God of War: A Comparison of Russian Cannon Artillery from 2000 and 2016 Using a DOTMLPF Framework   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Thesis Primary Research Question: "The decreased knowledge of mid-grade U.S. Army leaders and the ever-changing battlefield allowed U.S. adversaries to bridge the gap in artillery skills which existed prior to the Global War on Terror. Since the Global War on Terror, the tactical use of artillery in the United States Army has diminished. Over the course of multiple conflicts, the Russians have demonstrated their ability to adapt to new technology and incorporate new systems in their tactics. The U.S. military has lost its advantage and should relearn their artillery skills to prepare for the future possibility of fighting a peer/near-peer competitor. In order to prepare for a future conflict, a baseline should be set to determine how artillery will be used in conflicts of the twenty-first century. One possibility to establish a baseline is by conducting a comparative study to answer the question: 'What were the changes in Russian cannon artillery from 2000 to 2016 when examined within the framework of Doctrine, Organization, Training, Materiel, Leadership and Education, Personnel, Facilities (DOTMLPF)?'"
