Abstract : "Seventh Air Force Tactical Air Control Center Operations" fulfills three major purposes: it highlights 7AF tactical air operations in Southeast Asia (SEA) from 1 November 1967 through 31 May 1968; explains how airstrikes in South Vietnam were being coordinated with all friendly forces; and describes the organization and functions of the 7AF Tactical Air Control Center (TACC), as they were on 15 July 1968. This report also enlarges upon important changes in the 7AF Tactical Air Control System and other systems--discussing their genesis and evolution--their elements and staff agencies. Primarily, however, this study focuses on the Tactical Air Control Center in its primary role of allocations, direction, and control of in-country airstrikes and air defense in Southeast Asia.
