Russian Airpower in the 2008 Georgian War – A case of Warden? (English)
Abstract [en]

The Russian-Georgian war of 2008 drastically changed Europe´s and Sweden´s political climate.Russiashowed that it is capable of successfully completing complex campaigns including ground, naval and air assets. However, not much has been said about the theoretical framework and doctrine of the Russian military of today. Even less has been researched about Russian use of air power and applied air theory. Are air power assets still considered primarily as support of ground offensives or has the theoretical framework changed?

John A. Warden III´s theory presented in The Air Campaign and The Enemy as a System have had a big impact on western air power use. HasRussia also changed its approach on the use of air power to include the theory of Warden?

This thesis researches Russian use of air power in the war with Georgia 2008. The empirics are then compared to Warden´s theory of air power use to answer the question if Russia´s air power use in the war with Georgia 2008 was done in cohesion with what Warden suggests.

Abstract [sv]

Kriget i Georgien ändrade under några få dagar i augusti 2008 Sveriges och större delen av Europas säkerhetspolitiska klimat. Efter kriget står det klart att Ryssland genomförde en lyckad operation och nådde sitt mål att slå Georgien militärt. Väldigt lite har dock skrivits om Ryssland och dess militära teorigrund. Än mindre har skrivits om Rysslands flygstridskraftsanvändande teorigrund varför det kan vara intressant att vidare undersöka kriget i Georgien.

Det råder ingen tvekan om att västvärldens militärer har tagit starkt intryck av John A. Warden IIIs teori om fienden som ett system och hans bok The Air Campaign. Har även rysk militär inspirerats av Wardens tankar och försökte ryska flygstridskrafter i så fall praktisera dessa under kriget i Georgien 2008? Denna uppsats undersöker om ryskt luftmaktsanvändande under kriget i Georgien kan sägas vara inspirerat av John A. Warden IIIs teori som presenterades i hans The Air Campaign och The Enemy as a System.
