The concept of close a i r support is not new to the military mind. Its potential was fully realized in 1939 during World War II when solderis of t h e Wehrmacht over-ran highly fortified positions which were previously softened by repeat e d attacks of Stuka dive-bombers. Following Wo»-lc! War II, nuclear weaponry dominated the picture. A few nations hurridly build up their force of strategic nuclear armed launch vehicles. However, during the Korean Conflict, the U.S. was faced with a new type of war, a war where nuclear weapons release could not be risked. This conflict had to be fought man-to- man, not with nuclear weapons. H was here that the U.S. realized that a force of tactical fighters would be needed to gain superiority over the com bat /one and destroy enemv replacements and supplies before they could reach the front lines troops.
