Abstract : In this issue of Surface Warfare Magazine, we turn our focus toward fighting in the littorals. The post-Cold War era has demanded that we adapt our strategies, tactics and technologies to conform to this much more active and dangerous area of operations. Unlike open-ocean warfare in which we could focus all our attention on the Soviet threat, we now must be able to operate in the littorals where there is a wider variety of threats, a greater degree of uncertainty and a higher number of adverse environmental conditions. p2
