Abstract : Seamobile Air Cavalry is a concept which combines the tactical capabilities of air cavalry with the strategic advantages of a mobile seabase. This study examines the validity of the concept to provide a strategic force for the projection of US power. The world environment of 1980-85, and US interests therein, is first postulated. The utility of such a force is then considered, focusing on the strategic implications, deterrent value, and general operational conditions under which the force might be employed. Finally, organization, operational, and materiel concepts are proposed to implement the force. (Modified author abstract)
