dc.description.abstractPresent mission requirements and increased weapons technology dictate that there is a need to replace the US Army Infantry's medium antiarmor Dragon weapon system. In lieu of the Dragon, the U.S. Army is opting to field a new system called the Javelin Antitank Weapon System. This thesis explores the potential for the Javelin to enhance the operational effectiveness of the Mechanized Infantry assets of the U.S. Army. This analysis includes the development of Mechanized Infantry scenarios which employ the Janus(A) high resolution combat model. These scenarios model force-on-force trials of mechanized versus fully modernized armor heavy threats in deliberate defense and movement to contact missions. Results of the experimental data analysis indicate that the Javelin performs superior to the Dragon in terms of the mechanized force's range of antiarmor engagements, lethality, target stealing, and survivability. The findings to this thesis could benefit the U.S. Army in force structure and antiarmor weapon requirements with the future fielding of the Javelin to Mechanized Infantry units.en_US
