Abstract : This research reveals the requirements for additional security measures necessary to improve our war-fighting capability. It identifies the Air Force's present policy on arming of their personnel, the need for arming additional personnel, and its responsibility to protect its own resources during wartime operations. In addition, it includes testimonies from great warriors and results from various studies and analysis conducted by Air Staff members, steering committees and working groups supporting the need for arming additional personnel during hostilities. It also provides recommendations for arming personnel who are presently prohibited from carrying arms.
