Abstract

Since the use of enhanced technology by the opposing forces, Turkish Armed Forces must adopt new tactics, employ appropriately upgraded delivery equipment to deliver rations, fuel, ammunition, personnel, repair parts to forces in forward areas to be able to react in time. Within the budget limits, the opportunity to explore new tactics and to test and evaluate new logistics material delivery equipment is correspondingly difficult and sometimes impossible. However, by the use of simulation, which is inexpensive, new supply distribution techniques employing different equipment combinations both currently existing and experimental can be tested. In this study, we evaluate the performance of the existing and new systems of army corps artillery ammunition supply systems. The objective is to see whether the systems operate properly and to select the system design.
