H contains the news of Ihe Air Base. Aerial Warfare Is In Infancy By rm-:n Courier News Washington Correspondent DESERT TRAIN INC! CENTER, Calif.—Aerial warfare today is still apparently In its Infancy. As a branch of military science, it is still grounded in Us cradle. This in spite of the apparent high degree of "perfection' with which air battles are being fought every day over liinope, Africa and the Pacific. Planes arc better mechanically, bombs are constantly being made more deadly, while aircraft machine guns and cannon arc heavier anl have longer range. Yet, even before this war is over, it is Inevitable that there will be still bigger, better and longer range planes, cannon, and gims. Aerial weapons of today have their definite limitations. Bombing today is "precision" bambini; in name only. Strafing as It is known today is effective only against undefended positions ,ai)d when strafing is conducted against battle lines or supply lines which are well defended, it is extremely costly to (he attacking aircraft. Finally, the tactics of air-ground combat—that is, the method of employing air forces lo co-operate will) ground troops—is still in a decidedly embryonic slate of cvo-, lutton. PROBl.BMS UNIIKIl CONSTANT STUDY These arc the combined views of many air officers and ground force officers who have seen service in out of gas and have tn go home. The success of General Chen- natills Chinese operations in obtaining nuiximum effectiveness with minimum air strength is pointed to as a prime example of the nceci for further revision of Ihc 'air tactics now being (anght young- uir- inen.

They represent also the experiences of the British command in their operations. All these problems arc being constantly studied by responsible staff officers of every army, who shift their plans of operation and training as nesv doctrines are decided upon, and as newer and more |>o\v- erful weapons of all arms are developed, put in' production and made available to the services. What this points to is the possi bility of marked changes in tac- lies of aerial warfare, certainly for the next war, and a decided imssi- bllity even before tills war is much older. In the last war, the airplane was tiseful largely for observation, though acrobatics and doe fighting did come into use in combat of plane against plane, and though limited strafing of undefended ground positions was employed. The period between the wars saw the development of heavy bombing and anti-aircraft weapons with which to defend ground positions. Bill?, warfare saw the development of combined, co - ordinated air-ground attack, planes, instead of being operated independently, were actually attached lo ground force mils and fought witli them under orders of the ground commanders. SCATTERED AIR FORCE IS WKAK Many 'air officers now believe this may have been carried too Furlhermore. scattering of the air ti-aircraft weapons has made air- to-ground attack less effective. Furthermore, scattered of the air forces by assigning small units of aircraft lo ground forces has weakened the air power that could be delivered in concentrated attack. For a time, there was an idea Mint it would be nice to have aircraft flying around behind sonic cloud, subject lo call whenever the ground commander decided he was in need of aerial help to overcome some specific enemy strong point which was holding up his advance, and was out of range of his available artillery. The weakness of fhls has been that about every time tlie ground commander wanted his ,air arms to •function, they would be Won .. n .. 0 .. 7 4 3 3 3 G 3 2 .
