This paper describes assessments of the damage due to air attacks on USAFE airbases, and the impact of that damage on sortie production. These analyses also explore near-term changes in support concepts that would appear to offer possibilities for limiting some of the degrading effects of aircraft losses, battle damage, and air attack. These analyses form a portion of the ongoing policy investigations that are being conducted as a part of the Project AIR FORCE Resource Management Program at The RAND Corporation.
