The air power of the world’s hegemonic systems has made it possible to implement their dominance over independent countries in the corners of the world by using their tactical air units. Therefore, in order to oppose this hegemony, the policy-making for the development of the tactical air units, the recognition of the national and international environment and facing the air threats, strengths, weaknesses and the opportunities of the tactical units are analyzed. For this purpose, this paper explains the policy-making for the development of the offensive defense of the Air Force tactical units to empower them in the 21st century and offers the necessary strategies according to its tangible consequences. The research method is descriptive and the research population is the IRI Air Force tactical air units. According to experts, from studying of the documents and the experiences obtained from the performance of the tactical air units during 8-year Holy Defense and studying of the wars during the last three decades in the neighboring countries, it has been concluded that the formulation of principal policies suitable for the regional and beyond regional threats is necessary and indispensible for empowering the Air Force tactical units.
