The author explains some methodology for examining airpower in joint air-ground warfare. In order to compare several different compositions and uses of airpower the author considers the airpower systems in an overall air-ground battle. Two models that work closely together were developed. Ground attack sorties from the air-battle model TALLY are fed into the ground-battle model TOTEM, and the movement of ground units from TOTEM may feed back into TALLY, where they may, for example, overrun airbases or force their evacuation. The purpose of the methodology was to compare different airpower systems.
