Firebirds: A Simulation to Demonstrate Fundamentals of Army Aviation Reconnaissance and Security Missions [open pdf - 2MB]
From the Thesis Abstract: "This competitive wargame will examine the fundamentals necessary for a planner to provide critical information to the commander and demonstrate the complexity of gaining understanding of an unknown environment. This wargame will focus on tactics relevant for army aviation reconnaissance and security missions. The use of this simulation will allow the user to develop a strategy to conduct reconnaissance on specific intelligence requirements and follow the chain to decision points made by the commander. Through the use of this wargame, aviation officers assigned to an aviation reconnaissance squadron may gain greater appreciation of tactics in ATP 3-04.1 [Army Techniques Publication-Aviation Tactical Employment]."
