Abstract:

The purpose of the report is to provide guidance to U. S. Marine Corps planners for the implementation of combined action operations CAO in probable types of contingency situations, in particular types of environments, likely to develop in the midrange period 1974-1983. It provides a realistic appraisal of the milieu of future insurgencies which might require the introduction of the combined action units. It develops model scenarios of CAP involvement in hypothetical future insurgency situations in Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America. It also gives training and support requirements for future combined action operations.
