This paper analyzes the current NATO and Warsaw Treaty Organization proposals for arms control of tactical air forces in the Atlantic to the Urals ATTU region and then devises a more comprehensive approach. This new approach is based on an attempt to meet all objectives of the CFE mandate and is specifically focussed on the effort to limit the capability of surprise, offensive attacks. The paper proposes to limit these capabilities by inhibiting the single role, deep attack aircraft on both sides.
