The Balkan Air Campaign Study-Part1-Col.Robert Owen,USAF-Airpower Journal -Summer 1997
The Balkan Air Campaign Study-Part 2-Col.Robert Owen,USAF-Airpower Journal-Fall 1997
These two articles are an unclassified summary of the multi-volume study the AirForce conducted on the use of air power during Operation Deliberate Force in 1995. This campaign lasted 22 days in 1995 and included over 200 fighter and 70 support aircarft. They dropped 1026 weapons as opposed to the 227,840 during Desert Storm. The key difference was that the vast majority were precision-guided munitions(PGM's). Approximately 708 weapons were PGM's. NATO planners were added by the ground offensives launched by the rebuilt Croatian military and Bosnian Muslim's that resulted in the "ethnic cleansing" of several hundred thousand Serbs. But, it was the use of airpower in Deliberate Force and the heavy reliance on PGM's that had an influence on NATO in the ongoing campaign,  Operation Allied Force .
