This short paper presents estimates of delivery circular error probables (CEPs) for various air-to-ground weapons released from F-4D/E, F-111A, and A-7D aircraft using tactics most appropriate for the weapon/aircraft combination. This work was done in support of the Air Base Attack Study, which investigated options for NATO air forces to attack Warsaw Pact air bases.
