Abstract:

On the assumption that an attacker may have operational superiority in the air throughout the entire conduct of the war, which is quite possible, the action of a small air force would be governed by the following conditions vigorous action of all types of enemy aircraft and some missiles by day and by night and under favorable and complex weather conditions, and particularly vigorous action of enemy reconnaissance aircraft, unattached fighters, fighter-bombers, and a portion of the bombers, the system of airfields would not have an artificial screen, and because of the small depth of the territory of small countries, it would be exposed to constant air attacks and destruction by enemy offensive weapons.
