I differ from Robb in his nomenclature, as I believe the term “attempt” better describes the swarm-attack tactical/strategic opportunity he discusses.
8. Keep the pressure on with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose.
As dessert, you may also want to read this after-action report on the swarm attack war-gamed against the US Navy in 2002.
Food for thought:
Especially in asymmetric warfare, if a “failed” or “attempted” attack causes the OpFor to extend and deplete resources such that other near-simultaneous attacks are more likely to succeed, has the “failure” actually failed?
Phrased alternatively, ask Admiral Yamamoto about the failed attacks of VT-8 from Hornet and VT-6 from Enterprise near Midway Island on the morning of June 4, 1942.
