During the opening weeks of 1945, consideration within the higher Allied politico-military leadership turned to the manner in which British and United States strategic bomber forces might be used to aid the Soviet advance into Germany.
A planned USAAF attack on the city on 13 February 1945 was abandoned due to unsuitable weather.

 Ross & Perry, Inc. - Revolt of the Admirals
One symptom of this conflict was a showdown between the Air Force and the Navy over the role of carrier aviation in the national security framework of the United States.
This rejection fueled the Navy’s fear that naval aviation was to have a diminishing role in the new atomic age and provided the final impetus for a clash between the Air Force and the Navy.
During the latter hearings, high-ranking naval officers voiced their opinion that naval aviation was being denigrated by a Defense Secretary enamored with possibilities of strategic bombing and scornful of the Navy’s contribution to such a mission.

 Russia's Military Aviation Industry
The aviation industry's externally driven problems are compounded by its own lack of purposeful reform, which has left its development, testing, and production complex nearly as large and disjointed as it was in Soviet times, despite the steep decline in state orders.
The importance of the military aviation industry and its scientific base to national security and the importance of nursing its capacity through Russia's economic crisis are a major component of the policy.
Significantly for the military aviation industry, Pak immediately made clear that a major part of the policy reorientation was renewed emphasis on preser-vation of the 'science intensive' and advanced-technology sectors of the military-industrial complex.
