Abstract:

This project is an historical of the analysis of the battle of Waterloo with combat simulations. We recreated the decisive phase of the battle the charge of the French cavalry at 1600 hrs on 18 June 1815. We will model the military actions at the battle of Waterloo with the Janus combat simulation program. We modeled the French and British Army organizational structure and tactics. Weapon systems modeling including rated of fire, ranges, basic loads, probability of hits and kills speed. We verified the results of due combat simulation with what actually occurred to validate the simulation. After which, we modeled different assumptions the French commanders could have made and evaluate the possible outcome.
