Abstract
Different military units - personnel, equipment, forces and allies - protect and support each other in combat situations. We define cohesion as this type of protection and support. This paper quantifies the benefit of one aspect of cohesion, that is the optimal weapon assignment within a group of ships defending against attack from Anti-Ship Missiles. Extensions of the model to include different types of threat and geometry are discussed.
