Abstract:

This study is Volume III of a trilogy on USAF Operations from Thailand- 1966. Volume I was entitled Posture and the second volume concerned Air Operations. This volume on counterinsurgency in Thailand during 1966 does not duplicate the material published in an earlier CHECO Study, Lucky Tiger Special Air Warfare Operations, but is meant to complement that material. Whereas the Lucky Tiger report presented a detailed review of USAF support of the Thai counterinsurgency COIN effort, the synoptic view in this report I reveals certain general trends, and evaluates the COIN effort in the light of these trends.
