The logistic demands of operations in Afghanistan and Iraq initially concentrated attention on shortfalls in strategic airlift, a problem that several Euro-Nato nations are to solve in the short-term by leasing assets from the former Soviet Union. As operations in south-west Asia have changed to counter-insurgency, or perhaps civil war, the emphasis has switched to intra-theatre airlift, stressing the need for heavylift helicopters and reviving an old US inter-service demarcation dispute.
