I didn't suggest Air could replace Land any more than I'd suggest the opposite. Likewise, while the regular British Army (other than AH) was only involved in ELLAMY in secondary tasks, I would never suggest that a 'Land Component' (however ragtag!) wasn't present.
I'm not quite sure what point you're trying to make here @irlsgt. An individual 'target' can be serviced by one or 1000 weapons based on the number of Desired Point of Impacts (DPIs). Similarly, you may be surprised at some of the weapons being used.
Here's an edited snippet from the inquiry's outline:
The equipment requirements of the MoD are based on its assessments of current and future threats what would have worked last time if they'd thought of it, as set out in regular Strategic Defence and Security Reviews. In total, the MoD will spend £178bn over 10 years on equipment and support.
