Abstract [sv]

Sedan helikopterns introduktion har den använts på en olika sätt i många olika militäroperationer. Dess unika egenskaper gör den till en bra vapenplattform. Trots detta har dess roller inom modern krigföring aldrig riktigt definierats. Studien syftar till att ta reda på vilka roller helikoptern kan ha inom manöverkrigföring. Detta görs genom att analysera manöverkrigföringens utmärkande drag mot helikopterns utmärkande drag. Därefter används fallstudier av Operation Desert Storm och Operation Iraqi Freedom för att se hur helikoptern har använts. Studien visar att helikopterns viktigaste roller inom manöverkrigföring är att stödja markförbanden med rörlighet och verkan.

Abstract [en]

Since the introduction of the helicopter it has been used in a variety of ways in many different military operations. Its unique properties make it a good weapon platform. Despite this, its roles in modern warfare have never really been defined. This study aims to find out what roles the helicopter may have in maneuver warfare. This is done by analyzing the characteristics of maneuver warfare and comparing it to the helicopter's characteristics. The study will use case studies of Operation Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom to see how the helicopter has been used. This study shows that the helicopter's main roles in maneuver warfare are to support ground troops with mobility and firepower
