About the Edition

This thesis proposes a numerical measure of the combat power potential of U.S. Marine Corps close air support (CAS) aircraft. The combat power potential of a weapon system is defined as the rate at which the system could deliver lethal fire to any point on the battlefield, accounting for particular and relevant battlefield and enemy characteristics. This measure is expressed in units of "kills per minute," where each point is hypothesized to have an infinite supply of instantaneously replaced targets. The collection of these values (i.e., kills per minute for each battlefield point) is suitable for display as a "combat potential surface," overlaid on a battlefield map. In this thesis, points of higher potential are keyed to brighter colors (e.g., red, yellow, orange). The end result is a battlefield visualization tool to assist commanders and staffs in CAS planning.

The combat power potential of a weapon system is defined as the rate at which the system could deliver lethal fire to any point on the battlefield, accounting for particular and relevant battlefield and enemy : The full and final model for CAS combat power potential is summarized in the sixth chapter.

The seventh chapter presents an example of a combat power potential surface based on lethality values for close air support calculated using the methodology developed in this thesis. Enter the password to open this PDF file: Cancel OK.

The Marine Corps, within the Department of the Navy, shall serve as an expeditionary force in readiness and perform the following specific functions: •Seize and defend advanced naval bases or lodgments (areas) to facilitate subsequent joint operations.

•Provide close air support for ground forces. The design of JWARS and other new combat models should raise numerous issues about modeling approach and phenomenology.

To some extent this has happened, particularly with DOD's recognition that such next-generation models must represent the effects of the C 4 ISR systems on which much modern defense planning is focusing.

In many other respects, however, discussions to date have not. World War II marked the universal acceptance of the integration of air power into combined arms warfare as close air support.

Although the German Luftwaffe was the only force to use CAS at the start of the war, all the major combatants had developed effective air-ground coordination techniques by the war's. marksmanship, navigation, gunnery, and close air support.

The execution of these techniques and procedures must become sec-ond nature for us; this requires intensive and continuous training.

MVs can be used as rescue platforms and are supported by the As which are designed to conduct close air support, as well as combat search and rescue. Training with the Marines helps ensure the readiness of Davis-Monthan AFB A pilots to go downrange and execute both of these missions at a level that overpowers any potential adversaries.

This book is a reprint of the older Marine Corps Close Combat Training Program (MCCCTP) system manual for close quarters combat (CQC). MCCCTP replaced the even older USMC linear in-fighting neural-override engagement (LINE)system.

MCCCTP has also since been replaced by the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program (MCMAP)/5(16). Close air support was widely used on Guadalcanal in to support ground combat operations. Marine pilots initially flew from aircraft carriers and later moved ashore to Henderson Field. They often provided the only source of fire support.
