Two problems were quickly revealed with the BDA system. First, the system was overwhelmed by the number of BDA reports generated by CENTAF wings. Second, quality of the wing’s reports was uneven; many reports did not quantify results into tank or unit kills. 143 Quantifiable results were hard to estimate, particularly when attack results were observed from high altitude. 37 CADRE PAPER Additional problems external to CENTAF arose in Desert Storm because the CINC gave ARCENT and the US Marine Corps, Central Command (MARCENT) responsibility to determine the condition of enemy ground formations in their areas.

137 Increased distance from fighter to target resulted from high-altitude ingress and egress, leading to reduced effectiveness in target acquisition, attack assessment, weapons effects, and weapons accuracy. The problems of high-altitude tactics experienced by the F-16 units were quickly aggravated by CENTAF headquarters munitions decisions. A prewar weapons conference deprived F-16 units of guided antiarmor munitions and a wartime decision deprived them of their best unguided antiarmor weapon.
