Abstract:

This study is an examination of how current close air support doctrine, when opposed by SovietWarsaw Pact radioelectronic combat capabilities, impacts the U.S. Air Forces ability to closely support the ground commander in Central Europe. Addressed are the current system for close air support, system-induced problems, enemy-induced problems, and several non-doctrinal recommendations for solutions to these problems. Recommendations developed include a change in command status of USAF close air support forces, expansion and modernization of our non-radio communications, and formation of an artilleryCombat Electronic Warfare and Intelligence team to counter the Soviet radioelectronic combat forces. author
