Meyers Deplores Viet Air War Gradualism

Gen. Meyers. I think that in any review or look at the Vietnam war, first you must look at the strategy or the policy which is being pursued over there, and my understanding, of course, is that we have three stated objectives. [The objectives, which were restated earlier in the hearing, are: to assist the South Vietnamese in eliminating the armed enemy within South Vietnam, to support the South Vietnamese in the extension of their government’s control over its own territory and to apply gradually increasing pressures against North Vietnam so as to cause North Vietnam to cease supporting and directing the insurgency in South Vietnam.]

Derby, U.K.-Rolls-Royce RB.211 turbofan engine, being developed for at least two air-bus-type projects, has a built-in thrust growth of at least 25% in six years and is aimed at comprehensive use of composite materials for low cost and high performance.

War in Vietnam

North Viets Quickly Return Phuc Yen to Full Operation

Washington-Phuc Yen air base, major North Vietnamese headquarters for the Soviet-built MiG-21 Mach 2 jet fighter, returned to operational service last week despite three days of heavy strikes by U.S. aircraft in late October. The base near Hanoi, which had been on the White House proscribed list of targets until late last month, proved to be a tough target.

Soviet Space Progress

Soviet achievements in landing an instrumented capsule on Venus and automatically docking two large spacecraft in orbit should dispel any suspicions that the USSR has either abandoned or decelerated the pace of its space program. Both these feats were technical performances of the highest order.
