Abstract : The report identifies and examines the organizations, doctrine, and equipment utilized in refueling and rearming Army aircraft in forward areas. The time frame addressed is current (up to 1975). Both qualitative and quantitative types of analyses are made. The study determines the personnel and equipment required by specific nondivisional, separate brigade/regiment, and divisional aviation units for accomplishing forward area refueling and rearming (FARR) operations. In addition, a supplementary FARR capability is proposed for attachment or assignment to supporting headquarters, as required. Revisions also are indicated which should be made to field manuals and tables of organization and equipment by proponent agencies, upon approval of this study. (Author)
