Summary/Abstract: At the end of the twenty-first century first decade and the beginning of the second one, the contemporary world is still a contradictory place, full of contrasts, unpredictable and in continuous change. After 20 years from the end of the Cold War, we can only discern the changes of the following decades: from irregular warfare to non-state adversaries, from unipolarity to multipolarity. In this context, Air Forces are still a basic force category assuring the combat success. New risks, challenges and threats of the twenty-first century lead to an increasing complexity of Air Forces use, whereas their employment concepts will have to provide the full domination of the strategic air space, world-wide precise force projection at a high intensity, full-integrated and independent actions development.
