Abstract:

The report examines the future conventional war capabilities of CTOL conventional take-off and landing and VTOL vertical take-off and landing attack aircraft for evidence as to the orientation of effort that should be devoted to the development of these systems for sea-based strike forces in the 1970-80 decade. A major objective is the arrangement of readily quantifiable capabilities into a numerically based analysis which can be used in conjunction with qualitative judgement to identify areas that hold promise of improved operational and cost effectiveness.
