Army, Air Force Collaborate on Multidomain Battle Strategy Development

The U.S. Army and Air Force have teamed up to develop a battle strategy for both service branches to address battlefield challenges across multiple domains, DoD News reported Thursday.

Gen. James Holmes, commander of the Air Combat Command, and Gen. David Perkins, commander of the Army Training and Doctrine Command, are working together to create the multidomain concept.

Holmes noted the concept will rely on flexibility to understand various elements such as adversary behavior and ability to adapt in changing threat environments.

He added the Training and Doctrine Command will co-host a series of tabletop exercises alongside the Air Combat Command over the next year to evaluate the services’ capacity for collaboration.

“We have developed 13 initiatives … that the Air Force and Army can work together on, and … our goal is to try to find a way that the joint force, working together, can hold the initiative,” Holmes added.
