Here's an article on the Soviet approach to gaining air superiority that I found quite interesting.

https://www.cia.gov/readingroom/docs/DOC_0000969827.pdf

The website that hosts the document (https://www.cia.gov/readingroom/) is a veritable treasure trove of primary and secondary sources that I imagine would be of interest to the community.

Interesting analysis, thanks for sharing. I particularly liked the annexes describing the resources and likelihood of success for attacking the HAWK belt and airbases.

I guess I've been playing CMO for too long as not much in the main body was a revelation, except perhaps the impact of weather.

Forgot how cloudy it could be in Germany.

For me it was that and reading tons of OPFOR documents made later.

So in other words, LGBs would have been basically useless.

Played little bit with this. Attached is scenario where you command West German Bavarian air and air defence units with goal to survive Warsaw Pact first wave onslaught.

It is not ideally polished as my research is not finished. WarPac will not target radar bases.

There is no scoring but if WarPac air force close runways on Memmingen, Lechfeld and Neuburg consider it total defeat.
You can use any tactics you want – including pre-emptive attack. Goal of this is test different approaches to the problem.

Be free to modify it.
