Abstract:

An analysis of the doctrine, equipment, and technology contributing to the feasibility of the over-the-horizon amphibious assault. This study is an analysis of the tactics, techniques, procedures, doctrine, equipment, and technology utilized in over-the-horizon amphibious assaults. The study examines the issues surrounding current feasibility of the assault, as well as future feasibility of the assault. The study also briefly examines alternatives to over-the-horizon assault. The study concludes that over-the-horizon amphibious assault is not only feasible, but a required capability for the future. Current procedural and equipment deficiencies preclude feasibility for the moment, but given sufficient time and money, these difficulties can be overcome, ensuring over-the-horizon amphibious assault mission accomplishment.
