The Teaball Solution in Vietnam
Mike Hankins (Kansas State Associate Professor)
In 1972, after a 3 year bombing “truce”, the US Air Force air campaign
began again in earnest. By that time the North Vietnamese Air Force had
rebuilt their air strength and the US was at a great disadvantage in the
skies. A workable solution was urgently required to redress this issue.
“Teaball” was the answer.
