Abstract:

Since 1961 the Soviets have devoted considerable attention to improving base-level maintenance support of military aircraft. These efforts have shown, on one hand, a recognition of the need for keeping logistic support in pace with the increasing complexity of aircraft systems and equipment, on the other, the presence of a number of practical problems and areas of difficulty hampering the achievement of satisfactory solutions. This memorandum surveys the institutional setting in which base-level maintenance is performed in the Soviet Air Force, notes the chief areas of apparent difficulty, and examines some of the solutions advanced. While a number of topics are touched upon, the main discussion concerns maintenance management. The time period considered is bracketed by the years 1960 and 1964.
