Abstract:

This report is the second in a series articulating European air force positions on various tactical airpower issues, juxtaposing them with those of the U.S. Air Force. The first report dealt with comparative command and control and operational doctrine. The present report deals with the broader theme of the contribution of airpower in armored warfare. The belief underlying these studies was that the European position had neither been understood nor given enough attention in this country. The Europeans have worked out an approach to tactical airpower which, while possibly inappropriate for the USAF, may nevertheless be cheaper and more effective than our own for application in Europe.
