Abstract:

Deception in warfare can often trigger the differences between victory and defeat. Soviet deception doctrine and its application in client-state political and military operations warrants increased United States military considerations in the use and recognition of deceptive measures. The increased mobility requirements for our conventional forces and the subsequent expanded tactical airlift participation in active conflict provides the basis for this analysis. The study examines the methods of deception, success factors involved, and major considerations in the planning and implementation of deceptive operations for tactical airlift support in active hostilities.
