Abstract [en]

The general use of airpower and how it can best be applied in certain conflicts has always been a highly debated topic. Previous research shows that the opinions differs regarding how to apply airpower capabilities in a context of an armed conflict or peace operation. Airpower theorist Warden claims that regardless of the opponent, his theory is applicable to any context using airpower. The purpose of this research paper is to apply Wardens theory to a comparative study that examines airpower and its usefulness as a key instrument. The cases are the Kosovo war 1999 and the Libyan war 2011. The study has been used with a theory testing strategy which would contribute to the research gap. The analysis reveals that Wardens theory has its shortcomings. This related to the operations goal excluding strategic paralysis and including protection of the opponent´s civilians.

Air superiority is essential and after it is achieved the display of airpower to acquire a quick decisive victory is through air-interdiction attacking ground targets. In the effort to minimise the risk of killing or injuring non-combatants it is vital to use precision-guided weapons.
