Abstract:

The discussion of NavalMarine Corps Tactical Aircraft TacAir Integration has reached a feverous pitch over the last several months. Emotions run high both for and against the concept. In an effort to achieve greater combat capability, while using the limited resources planned for by the Department of the Navy, it is the NavyMarine Corps Teams collective goal to streamline its ability to support the Marine Air-to-Ground Task Force MAGTF without sacrificing efficiency. To that end, the Chief of Naval Operations and the Commandant of the Marine Corps have enthusiastically endorsed the concept. It is my intent to provide a point of departure as we investigate and discuss the advantages and disadvantages associated with the plan.
