ABSTRACT

CBO Study: Sea Basing and Alternatives for Deploying and Sustaining Ground Combat Forces   [open pdf - 924KB]

From the Preface: "This Congressional Budget Office (CBO) study--prepared at the request of the Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Sea Power and Expeditionary Forces of the House Committee on Armed Services--looks at the capabilities and costs associated with MPF(F) and sea basing in general as well as other approaches that DoD might take to improve its expeditionary capabilities. The study compares the advantages, disadvantages, and costs of eight alternative systems--five that would involve the sea basing of ground forces and three that would use aircraft to directly deliver forces and supplies. In keeping with CBO's mandate to provide objective, impartial analysis, this study makes no recommendations."
