Knowing the characteristic of battle duration is important for commanders and logicians in the analysis of combat realization. Analytic solutions for mean and standard deviation can be found in small sized battles. Stochastic combat simulation model is utilized to study a probabilistic behavior of the combat duration. Output data is fitted to a certain probability distribution and some moments such as skewness and kurtosis are investigated. Fire allocation strategies, reselect options, interfiring time random variables, and kill rates are considered to investigate how they affect the battle termination time.
