Description of the TSARINA computer program, developed to examine conventional air attacks against complex targets and to assess losses and damage to categories of resources and to buildings and other facilities. TSARINA permits damage assessments of attacks on an airbase complex composed of up to 500 individual targets (buildings, taxiways, etc.), and 1000 packets of resources. Targets may be grouped into 20 vulnerability categories, and different types of personnel, equipment, munitions, spare parts, and other support resources can be distinguished. TSARINA determines the actual impact points by Monte Carlo procedures and the losses and damage are assessed using cookie-cutter weapon-effects approximations. TSARINA may be employed separately as a general-purpose model or used in conjunction with the TSAR (Theatre Simulation of Airbase Resources) computer model to assess the impact of airbase damage on sortie generation capabilities and to evaluate proposals for improving those capabilities at an airbase or set of airbases. Detailed user instructions and a listing of the program are included. (Author).
