The required ammunition consumption for anti-aircraft missile system to destroy aerial targets is a random variable. This paper proposes calculation method of ammunition consumption for the missile system to destroy aerial targets, which can calculate the average ammunition consumption for the missile system to destroy a single target, thin targets and dense targets respectively. The example shows the proposed calculation method is simple, and can support anti-aircraft missile firing operations.
