ABSTRACT

This paper was studied on the combat power index(CPI) of two nation's warship during japanese invasion of Korea in 1592(So called "Imjin Waeran" in that the War broke out the year of Imjin). Combat power index calculation model was utilized in the Ranchester's law. In order to gain the proper data, historical records were classified and the controversial data which contains some sea-battles related to abnormal operations and sequence attack were excluded, After the refinery process, 7 kinds of battle selected. These are the sea-battel of "Okpo, Happo, Jucjinpo, Sachun, Dangpo, Danghangpo, Hansando". The output data of the 7 sea-battle were inputted into the Lanchester's model.(warship numbers committed to combat, remaining warship numbers). The result is that Japan warships' (Three types of warship according to the size : large, middle, small) CPI is "16.1:15.0:11.3". This means that 1 korea's warship(Called as Panoksun) CPI is similar to 16.1 japan's large warship CPI. Because the korea's warship CPI was stronger than japan's warship, korea navy could overwhelmed the Japanese navy in a lot of sea-battles at that time.
