Abstract [en]

This paper examines how Wardens five-ring model can be altered to counterinsurgency center of gravity, to allow a more specific theory for airpower in counterinsurgency operations. The study has been undertaken since research regarding air power in counterinsurgency operations shows an absence for specified theory. Previous research tends to apply traditional airpower theories without taking into account the great differences in center of gravities of different warfare’s.

A previous study has been made to adapt Wardens five-ring model to counterinsurgency warfare, where the theory development of this study continues from. The developed theory is strengthened by further theoretical arguments and literature to give it more scientific basis. The developed theory is examined by a single-case study of the second Lebanon war in 2006. 

Results of the analysis reveal that Wardens five-ring model successfully can adapt to counterinsurgency center of gravities. Conclusions can be drawn to the possibilities and preferences of a more adaptable theory towards what war that is fought, rather than an all-embracing theory for all warfare’s. The study contributes to existing research by providing a scientifically improved model to analyze the use of air power in counterinsurgency.
