fire advantage, effectiveness, long-range engagement assets


The aim of the article was to determine the long-range assets effectivity dependence on the method of their employment. To achieve this goal, the mathematical model of combat employment of long-range assets based on the theory of Markov processes with continuous time and discrete states was improved. In contrast to the existing ones, the improved mathematical model includes a state in which the asset launches a second missile strike from the firing position from which the previous missile strike was launched. This provides the possibility to model the method of combat employment of the assets, the implementation of which makes it possible to increase the number of missile strikes made in a certain time by these assets. This is the essence of long-range assets effectivity employment.
