Abstract:

This research identifies a more cost effective way to employ airpower in small conflicts and specifically Operation INHERENT RESOLVE OIR. The goal is not to recommend replacement of or reduction in F-35s, but rather to pinpoint specific areas where the United States Air Force USAF can realize operational cost savings to help ease the financial burden of more expensive modern weapons systems.
