This report is the unclassified version of a classified report that we issued in July 1996 on the Operation Desert Storm air Campaign. The Department of Defense DoD reevaluated the security classification of the original report, and as a result, about 85 percent of the material originally determined to be classified has subsequently been determined to be unclassified and is presented in this report. The data and findings in this report address 1 the use and performance of aircraft, munitions, and missiles employed during the air campaign 2 the validity of DOD and manufacturer claims about weapon systems performance, particularly those systems utilizing advanced technology 3 the relationship between cost and performance of weapon systems and 4 the extent that Desert Storm air campaign objectives were met.
