Abstract:

The principal objective of this paper is to explore both theoretical and practical aspects of possible Soviet recce-strike complexes. Note that despite the use of the term complex by the Soviets, a recce-strike complex is not a permanent system, but a collection of various subsystems assembled and directed to accomplished a specific task. Subsystems of a particular recce- strike complex can belong at the same time to another recce-strike complex. Thus, the best way to describe the Soviet concept of recce-strike is to describe and analyze various subsystems or elements which comprise a recce-strike complex. Therefore, the essentials of recce-strike complexes, i.e., reconnaissance, fire concept, and lastly, but perhaps most important, the C3 subsystems, the C3 subsystems, will be described and analyzed in some detail.
