The Quick Reaction Analysis QRA was performed jointly by the US army Engineer School and TRADOC Analysis Command in support of operation Desert Storm. The analysis examined a combined arms deliberate breach of a complex obstacle. The QRAs initial purpose was to quantify direct- and indirect-fire attrition rates during the conduct of a opposed heavy force armored deliberate breach. Army leaders later used QRA insights to help determine fielding priorities for countermeasure and counterobstacle material in support of Desert Storm. The QRA used the Janus A simulation to game a scenario developed to reflect realities in the Gulf. Janus A focuses on individual fighting system engagements and assessments.
