This paper documents the authors work in creating a replication of the Battle of 73 Easting in the JanusA combat simulation. 73 Easting, an engagement in Operation Desert Storm, was significant because it was an Armored Cavalry engagement against a force superior in numbers, and because it provided the occasion for the first effort to gather combat data suitable for combat simulation and battle re-creation using advanced technology. While the original data were used as a basis for battle re-creation in SimNet, the authors replicated that effort using the same data and the JanusA Model. Their findings with respect to available data, model characteristics, and the six simulation excursions they conducted are presented in this volume.
