Aviators believed in the importance of air superiority and that interdiction would be helpful to ground operations ; however, no one was particularly eager to pursue close air support for ground troops . This was due in part to Chennault believed in the importance of both offensive and defensive air superiority . His thinking was not in terms of point air defense, and in the early mid-1930s he didn't really do much thinking about air support for ground operations other than in providing air superiority .

MACV Directive 95-4, 6 May 1965, had excluded Marine aviation from control of the MACV air deputy ; Marine forces were employed in I Corps (the northernmost corps area in South Vietnam) under the III Marine Amphibious Force command .
