Janes increases your awareness of the operational environment by providing open-source intelligence that supports threat and capability assessments, event analysis, change detection, and equipment recognition. The interconnectivity of Janes data delivers unique insights and reveals previously hidden connections, bringing both visibility and accessibility to help you deliver more robust situational assessments and analysis.
The case study that follows demonstrates how you can explore the organisation and order of battle for a particular unit or base in Russia's Western Military District.
Bases can be filtered by type and narrowed down by criteria such as unit name, number of runways, operator service type and more. Here we focus on a particular unit - the 1st Guards Tank Army, where we are shown the bases that the units within this army are located. By choosing a location, in this example Mulino West, you can quickly understand the equipment in operation by the units that operate from the chosen base.

Examine the capabilities of the Mulino West base by identifying the equipment being operated by the 288th Artillery Brigade. Here we look to understand the capabilities of the Msta-S, along with its role, type and operating countries. View the platform in more detail using Janes equipment explorer to gain insight into its specifications, manufacturers, and access inventories data to understand where else it operates across the globe.
In this example we will look at the Krasnopol guided projectile system that is onboard the Msta-S. Access wider metadata, including details of the weapon supplier, specifications, along with further news and analysis on wider Russian ammunition capability.
