Design for Survival excerpt #5: Tactics

In trying to predict bomber attrition rates, one of the most important contributing factors is frequently overlooked, that is, the unpredictable factor of tactics. I maintain that the commander and his tactics, more than anything else, determine the losses in any offensive action. The flexibility in SAC's penetration tactics makes it possible to hold those losses to a minimum by affording a wide choice of strategies.
