Aerial attacks during the Korean and Vietnam wars involved limited campaigns waged with conventional ground weapons. U.S. military aviators provided close support and attacked enemy supply lines. Although air power did not play a decisive role in Korea or Vietnam, U.S. strategic air power did help deter the Soviet Union and China from expanding these wars into global conflicts. See some of the aircraft used by both sides of these conflicts.
