Defensive Counter Air

A military aircraft combat role involving the protection of friendly assets, such as AWACS or ground forces for a prescribed amount of time. During DCA missions it is imperative not to leave ones station during this time, to ensure no friendly targets in the area are damaged or destroyed.

The major difference between DCA and BARCAP is that the former consists of protecting a specific target, as opposed to the latter which consists of protecting a general region.
