This thesis compares the weapon systems losses experienced at the National Training Center (NTC) with weapon systems losses in the high resolution combat model JANUS (TRASANA) for the Defend in Sector battle scenario at the Siberia location of the NTC. The scenario is fought between a United States Army Battalion Task Force against a Soviet Motorized Rife Regiment. The comparison was conducted at both the aggregate and individual weapon system level. The comparison showed that the JANUS (T) model results in a higher number of losses for both the red and blue forces than was observed at the NTC. Additionally, the comparison showed that red force BMP weapon system and the blue force TOW weapon system (both wire guided anti-tank missile platforms) to be much more lethal in the JANUS (T) model than was observed at the NTC.
