This study examines the brown water force structure needed to respond adequately to missions identified in the National Security Strategy and National Military Strategy, in the regions specified in these two documents where littoral operations might be the appropriate response.

The impetus for this research was to respond to a question similar to the thesis posed by the Naval Doctrine Command. This study established baseline force requirements for riverine patrol and coastal interdiction operations by analyzing the Vietnam War. The figures for the number of boats required to patrol a given length of river or coast line are then used to determine the size of the brown water force required to respond adequately to the regions of potential conflict.

This study determined that the current brown water force structure was adequate to meet the requirements of the most demanding major regional conflict. The brown water force sturcture was not adequate to support two major regional conflicts at the same time. If the National Security Strategys requirement that the armed forces be prepared to fight two nearly simultaneous major regional conflicts is interpreted to allow the brown water force to be deployed sequentially between conflicts, then the current brown water force structure meets the needs of the Navys littoral strategy and the ends, ways, and means of the National Security Strategy and the National Military Strategy.
