Behind enemy lines with nowhere to go because you are pinned down on all sides by enemies is not anyone?s idea of a picnic, but this is a very real scenario which members of the United States Army can find themselves in. It is comforting to know that an air strike to take out the fighter around you is only a call away. Nothing sounds sweeter than the US Air Force coming to the rescue.
Providing Air Support
Swooping into help troops on the ground is just one of the many missions that the United States Air Force offers in a combat situation. Coming in with guns or a missile strike will help the troops on the ground to be able to get the advantage that they need to take a situation which was out of control and put it back in control. This is why after the mission it is normal to see the two divisions enjoying a drink together at the bar.
Offering Equipment Drops
Another mission the United States Air Force offers on a daily basis is the ability to drop any piece of machinery anywhere in the world at a moment?s notice. There is hardly anything better than being able to get artillery equipment when you need to take an enemy by force and you are without a big stick.
