The Tactical Air Command and its aircraft

through the 49 issues of the "Moniteur de l'Aéronautique

The first issue of the magazine "Le Moniteur de l'Aéronautique" hit the newsstands in October 1977. In November 1981, the last issue ended 49 issues rich in aviation news and history.

The second volume of the trilogy devoted to the US Air Force over the 49 issues of Le Moniteur de l'Aéronautique.

The Tactical Air Command of the 1970s was first and foremost a set of air power projections based on the famous "High/Low Mix" doctrine: a large number of moderate fighter aircraft controlled the battlefield while a smaller number of larger and more powerful fighters protected them by ensuring air supremacy. Thus, the F100/F101 pair was replaced over the years by the F16/F15 pair. As for the A-10, described at length in an in-depth article, it was entrusted with the specialised mission of tank killers.

Fragmentary, quasi-impressionist, this compilation does not pretend to treat the subject in an exhaustive way. It simply has the value of a snapshot that fixes a certain vision.

The way things were seen more than forty years ago.
