Abstract [en]

This study focuses on the capability of helicopters within an irregular context. The helicopter is often unacknowledged or even omitted in COIN theories, which is a great shortcoming. This study proves it is an important asset against an irregular opponent.

Using a case study based on air operations during the Malayan Emergency, known as Operation Firedog together with Galula’s counterinsurgency theories, an “ideal” approach of “how to defeat an irregular opponent” emerges. This study shows that the helicopter has many advantages when resisting insurgents in order to win conflicts.

Although this study results in many already known facts and information about the capability of helicopters, it does demonstrate the relevancy for some other purposes, except the most recognized ones such as mobility, flexibility and support. Additionally, the study brings some new perspectives to the psychological aspects provided by helicopters.
