Abstract
This study uses a simple spreadsheet model to simulate a one-on-one engagement between two combat vehicles with the objective of comparing the performance of the High Energy Missile (HEMi) mounted on a Light Armoured Vehicle (LAV3) with that of the LAV TOW Under Armour (LAV TUA), the Mobile Gun System, and the 25 mm APFSDS on a LAV3. These BLUE systems were placed in conflict with a variety of RED threats, both guided and unguided. The results suggest that in long-range engagements or in engagements with a T-80U at any range, the LAV3 carrying the HEMi is the superior system. Both the MGS and the LAV3 with a 25 mm APFSDS are better suited to shorter-range engagements against a BMP2.
