An air fight is a combat between aircraft
involving fire and movement by the opposing forces engaged.
Fighting between aircraft in flight results from or grows
out of the attempt to deny air attack and air observation.
In air fighting there is no counterpart of the battle between
ground forces. Air fighting is incidental to the carrying out
of other and potentially decisive air operations. In itself,
air fighting is indecisive, except as it affects the success or
failure of other technical functions of aviation or ground
forces. The permanent effects of air combat are measured
in terms of attrition of the forces engaged and reduction in
vigor of the enemy's air operations.
