Abstract : This report assesses the importance and vulnerabilities of Soviet force integration in conducting theater missions against the U.S. Theater Nuclear Force (TNF). Roles which naval, air and ground forces play in integration are evaluated, as are the specific requirements for integration between force elements and the service branches. The Soviet planning process for integration is described, and a number of specific vulnerabilities (from command/control to theater-dependent variables) assessed for their impact on Soviet force integration.
