Contents:
A backdrop of apartness -- The watershed of Desert Storm -- Post-Gulf War Navy adjustments to new demands -- First steps toward integrated strike-warfare training -- Continued sources of Navy-Air Force friction -- A convergence of integration over Afghanistan -- Further convergence in Operation Iraqi Freedom -- Emergent trends in Air Force-Navy integration -- A new synergy of land- and sea-based strike warfare -- Further challenges and opportunities.
Summary: This report documents the exceptional cross-service harmony that the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy have steadily developed in their conduct of integrated strike operations since the first Persian Gulf War in 1991. That close harmony contrasts sharply with the situation that prevailed throughout most of the Cold War, when the two services maintained separate and unique operating mindsets and lacked any significant interoperability features.
