Overview

Marine Corps Warfighting Publication MCWP 3-20 (Formerly MCWP 3-2) Aviation Operations 2 May 2016
Aviation is an integral part of the naval expeditionary air-ground team-it extends the MAGTF's operational reach and flexibility and expands its warfighting power. Marine Corps Warfighting Publication (MCWP) 3-2, Aviation Operations, applies the warfighting philosophy in Marine Corps Doctrinal Publication (MCDP) 1, Warfighting, to Marine aviation operations. It is the link between higher order doctrine and the tactics, techniques, and procedures contained in other Marine aviation doctrinal publications. This publication establishes the doctrinal basis for the planning and execution of aviation operations and provides the philosophy for employment of Marine aviation in the prosecution of war and other operations in support of the Marine Corps' mission as the nation's expeditionary force in readiness.
This publication is intended primarily for commanders and staff officers who are responsible for the planning and execution of aviation operations. Nonetheless, it should be read by all Marines who are supported by or involved in the execution of aviation operations. It is also intended for other doctrine centers, joint and multinational staffs, professional military educational activities, and any other activity that requires an understanding of Marine aviation. It explains U.S. Marine Corps aviation capabilities and how the Marine air-ground task force (MAGTF) exploits these capabilities, both operationally and tactically. It does not discuss the specifics of unit-level tactics and procedures; e.g., air-to-air combat tactics, how to conduct a helicopterborne operation, or how to attack any particular target. Rather, this publication applies maneuver warfare concepts to Marine aviation operations, especially in aviation's role as an integrated combat arm of the MAGTF.
As with all Marine Corps doctrinal publications, this publication is authoritative in nature but requires judgment in application. It supersedes Fleet Marine Force Manual (FMFM) 5-1, Organization and Function of Marine Aviation.
