Abstract : This article advocates parallel track tactics for night attack. The need for this technique is established, and a short historical development is given. Procedures for planning and flight operations are discussed, and the advantages over current night tactics are described. Constraints that will limit implementation are analyzed, and a methodology for incorporating night parallel track tactics into the USAF tactics 'bag of tricks' is developed.
