Gunpowder battle tactics (version 1.1.0)

Computational models have been extensively used in military operations research, but they are rarely seen in military history studies. The introduction of this technique has potential benefits for the study of past conflicts. This model was developed to help understand European military tactics during the eighteenth century, in particular during the War of the Spanish Succession.
The computer simulation is useful to test the significance of the different parameters that affected infantry performance in the battlefield, according to a variety of primary sources and research hypotheses.

The model has been developed using the Pandora ABM framework.
