Military Vim. Turkey-Greece-Cyprus
Turkey has a clear superiority in the a:i_r for operations against
Cyprus, not only because of numerical superiority in tactical fiGhter
and figher/bomber aircraft (approximately 380 of all types against
Greece's 2)5 or so) but because of the nearness of the main TAP
field at Incirlik, near Adana, to Cyprus (1'(~ miles as opposed to
the nearest Greek base at Gouda Bay on Cree--360 miles). This would
