Abstract: This paper investigates the effect of different Command and Control Concepts (C2) on the outcome of military engagements. The C2 concepts from literature were found to be based on the OODA loop or derivatives thereof. Agent Based Modelling software is used to implement the C2 concepts in basic combat scenarios. In the scenarios opposing forces consist of agents with the aim of finding and destroying each other. The outcomes of the simulations showed that the implementation of basic C2 concepts and rules will improve the probability of success. The application of situation awareness information to direct agents and concentrate resources drastically improved engagement outcomes. Although being basic implementation of C2, this investigation forms the basis for future detailed research
