Breakdown of Sorties

Of the total of 109,876 aircraft sorties, the percentages by service broke down like this:

  • Air Force 59.3%
  • Navy 16.0%
  • Allied Forces 15.7%
  • Marine Corps 9.0%

While Army aviation certainly played a major role in the Gulf War, the figures I have didnÕt separate out their missions as I think the figures deal only with fixed-wing aircraft

Breaking this down even further, we see something like this:

Air Force Missions

  • Combat 45%
  • Air Force Support 24%
  • Other Support 26%
  • Defensive Counterair 5%

Navy Missions

  • Strike 36%
  • Fleet Defense 30%
  • Support 34%

Marine Missions

  • Combat 84%
  • Support 16%
