The purpose of this work was to develop "mixed" probabilistic models of bilateral military operations according to the theory of continuous Markov processes. In our research we obtained calculation formulas for estimating the main combat indices of groups small in number. Moreover, we developed a numerical algorithm to calculate the main combat indices of numerous groupings and made a comparison with the results of combat simulation using a deterministic model of two-way combat operations, the model being developed according to themean-value method dynamics. Findings of the research show that the correlation of the forces of the opposing sides, rather than their initial numbers, affects the errors in the mean-value method dynamics.
