They say the results of the war will have at least as much impact on concepts of warfare as did the Spanish civil war of where the blueprints were laid down for such tactics as mass bom- bings from the air. The Sinai Desert and the Golan Heights have served as a testing ground both for the movment of large forces and mainly for the in battle of some of the most modern military gadge- try The experts say a foremost lesson of the even more important than the efficiency of infra-red guiding equip- ment or ultra-modern mis- is that the cost of mod- ern warfare is beyond the reach of most save those with direct supply lines to the two superpowers In the first Israeli Fi- nance Minister Pinhas Sapir the war was cost- ing Israel the equivalent of every minute NOT DEFINED In global the ex- perts believe this will force a number of important political particularly in Western Europe. There the choice between strengthened military ties with the United States or a common European defence policy and budget have yet to be clearly de- fined. The experts believe the principal revelation of the conflict is that armored forces can be slowed or even checked by infantry massively equipped with highly ef- ficient anti-tank weapons if the infantry have a degree of air cover. The Israeli jets which at- tempted to sweep the terrain where the Egyptians en- trenched themselves after crossing the Suez canal Oct. 6 were met by a hail of SAM-6 ground-to-air missiles from the other side of the canal. These proved highly effective against low-flying aircraft on strafing the experts said. With uncertain air the first Israeli tank crews to counterattack the Egyptians said they had the impression very third Egyptian soldier was equipped with an anti- tank missile. MISSILE DEADLY The Egyptians made deadly use of the wire-guided Sagger missile. It has an effective range of is easily fired and guided from the ground or an armored with a hollow charge that can apparently pierce every known armor Fired in batches by infantry hidden up to 15 yards from the portable they are believed by the experts to have accounted for many Is- raeli tanks in the first counter-attacks. The halting of Israeli armor and the interdiction of air space by Egyptian missile batteries forced the Israeli general staff to devise a new attack plan. The plan was the crossing of the Suez canal to the Egyp- tian rear by what was ini- tially a small task force aimed at out the is the first time in military history that a ground force has been used to clear the terrain in order that air support might be brought in to permit that same ground force in operate un- der cover of an air um- a foreign military at- tache said. USED ARMOR With the entire east canal bank occupied by the Egyp- tians at that stage of the the Israeli forces used their armor in the hope of drawing the Egyptians out while an- nouncing to the world that one of the great tank battles in history was iir progress. The Egyptian confident in the superiority of their brand new Soviet-made T-62 tanks over the generally- older Israeli were drawn forward and to the out of range of the protective umbrella provided by their ground-to-air missiles on the other bank. The Israeli response was to pull back the Israeli tanks and send in low-flying and highly manoeuvrable French- designed Fouga Magister jets equipped with Western experts said. The Egyptian armor with- drew from the field leaving many of its tanks gutted and destroyed. But the lesson of the battle would only have a short-term the experts since it was probable that a missile of the quality of the SAM-6 but able to operate from more highly mobile would be designed in the near future. HIT BATTERIES The SAM-6 batteries them- selves were not totally in- vulnerable and while they have a 360-degree firing the Israeli planes were able to develop tactics to hit them One of the most interesting weapons to be used in the current conflict and which probably has a definite fu- its accuracy can be the tactical- range ground-to-ground mis- sile The Frog-7 missiles used by Syria in the opening days of the war against areas deep within Israel can carry a half- ton explosive warhead over 43 miles. One timeless lesson of war- fare which was underlined by the present conflict was the need fpr constant and wide- ranging the experts said. Sears RUG REMNANT CLEARANC STARTS A.M.
