The Javelin antitank weapon system will replace the Dragon m Infantry and Combat Engineer battalions on a one for one basis. The tactics and techniques for Javelin employment will closely mirror those used for Dragon and TOW missile systems. This thesis examines the effectiveness of Javelin versus Dragon and examines a different employment method. The thesis goals are: • To investigate the suitability of Janus(A) to model the employment of various weapon systems. • To compare Javelin against Dragon, using measures of effectiveness and performance outlined in the Test and Evaluation Plan (TEP). • To examine how changes in the composition and tactical employment of anti-armor weapon systems influence their lethality and survivability, potentially suggesting a more effective employment method. The data generated from the simulated force-on-force scenarios is analyzed using graphical, statistical, and mathematical modeling techniques. The results could benefit the Army's Training and Doctrine Command in their combat development and combat effectiveness analysis.
