Joint Training for Night Air Warfare

by Brian W McLean | 01 August 2002
PAPERBACK
Category: Politics
Synopsis
The reality of today's world is that although the threat of World War III may be greatly reduced, the possibility of wars involving American troops remains high. These wars probably will be conducted by large and complex joint staffs and likely will be characterized by intense activity carried out regardless of weather, time of day, or seasons of the year. Our most recent experiences in Panama, Grenada, Libya, and the Persian Gulf have proven that modern war requires joint air, land, and naval forces fighting both day and night. Are we preparing to do this? Are we training for air operations using all forces at our disposal in a war that may begin in the middle of the night? The author's contention is that training for night air operations, particularly with our sister services, is in its infancy. Using his personal experience he sets out to recommend better uses of the training facilities of all the services to improve the situation. After examining the history of joint operations and night air operations, presenting a hypothetical joint night scenario to show the tremendous challenges of such operations, and describing the current status of joint night training programs, the author recommends a phased building-block approach that should increase the Air Force's capability to perform both single-service and joint operations any time of the day or night. This will ensure that we train as we plan to fight in future air operations. Lt. Col. Brian W. McLean prepared this book as the Pacific Air Forces command-sponsored research fellow at the Airpower Research Institute.
