Command of the air


Control of the air - a decisive superiority aircraft of one of the warring parties in the airspace of the theater of operations. The scale may be strategic, operational and tactical. The decisive role in the conquest of the air belongs to the Air Force and air defense troops

Ensuring the Air Force combat operation actions of one fighter or the combined action of various types of air power against the enemy Air Force is just one part of the struggle for supremacy (domination) in the air. Basically, air superiority is achieved by systematically organized struggle against enemy aircraft.

This struggle, in addition to "security" and defense measures include the following active measures:

  • a) wide, systematically carried out (on a broad front and in the rear of the enemy) reconnaissance of the enemy groups (airfields), its activity (monitoring of airfields and military work TTO), object of the aviation industry, air bases and aviation training centers, supplying and replenishing Soy aviation, part (agent and aerial reconnaissance);

  • b) the systematic destruction of the enemy air force in the air and on the ground.

Air Force destroyed the enemy in the air in air battles and battles, conducted both over enemy territory and over its territory during its invasions (bombing enemy action, airborne assault forces, the actions of large groups of its fighters on the battlefield).

Constant monitoring of the airfields of the enemy and the flight of small and large groups of its aircraft, shadowing etiimi groups and radio guidance on their fighter groups (as in the case of large-scale invasion and groups of other types of aircraft) to repel the enemy raid allow to destroy his aircraft even above its own territory or at least on the outskirts of its territory and the most important objects. In an extreme case, the enemy air force destroyed on the return of their ROsgraschenii. One of the main ways to destroy the enemy aircraft, returning from a raid, it is an attack on the ground after landing.

The ultimate goal of fighting the Air Force in the battle for tactical and operational control of the air will be:

  • a) to deprive the enemy air force to freely carry out their basic tasks, mainly where it is necessary for our operations or battle;

  • b) to provide its troops and navy to carry out their tasks without counter enemy aircraft.

In this struggle for supremacy in vozduhe- involves all kinds of aircraft.
