ABSTRACT
The article discusses the cooperation of U.S. Navy and Air Force assets in strike warfare. Historically and up through the Vietnam war, the two services operated independently of one another. Operation Desert Storm in 1991, however, revealed serious deficiencies stemming from lack of interoperability. Since then the Navy and Air Force have worked more closely to improve their joint capacities.
