Abstract : This paper will explore the areas of Coalition and Joint operations, force protection, and support requirements at the operational and operation-tactical level that could be weaknesses, perhaps even critical vulnerabilities, in the OMFTS concept. OMFTS is a concept for amphibious operations in the 21st century. There is no question that a new approach and mentality toward littoral warfare is needed.
