Abstract:

Explores possible effects on U.S. Air Force fighter deployments and airlift of changes in U.S. overseas basing and overflight rights, in perceptions by coastal nations of their offshore rights, and in world-wide antiair and antiship capabilities. Examines flight times and tanker requirements in hypothetical pure cases involving the use of only U.S.-owned bases and a base at the final destination, together with the implications of several enroute alternatives variously calling for the avoidance of overflying Communist countries or the land, territorial waters especially straits, or exclusive economic zones of third countries. Suggests technical and diplomatic approaches toward alleviating the problem. Author
