Abstract
During the next five years the Canadian Forces (CF) will be acquiring 100 new Utility Tactical Transport Helicopters (UTTHs). These helicopters will become the sole tactical aviation asset of the Canadian Army. The report discusses the application of low level combat simulations to studying UTTH attrition for it's proposed roles. Preliminary results are given for the effects of the Nap-Of-the-Earth (NOE) altitude at which the UTTH will fly reconnaissance. The results indicate thatthe current NOE altitude employed for the UTTH by the CF (5m) would double the loss rate over that currently used by the Army's Light Observation Helicopter (LOH) for this role (2m). The report concludes with a discussion of further studies, including linking this low level analysis with investigations from higher level models to determine overallattrition rates.
