Abstract : A new mission for aircraft carriers is proposed. The mission is to provide mobile bases from which to operate transport aircraft capable of landing troops and equipment at inland points where a threat requiring immediate discriminating response may exist. Mission requirements are examined, and capability estimates are derived from predictable aircraft technology. It is concluded that the mission is feasible. (Author)
