Attack controllers to identify targets, after extensive combat scenarios at N Holloman Air Force Base last summer, the Air Force is evaluating combat missions for light attack aircraftM.
Combat scenarios are part of a trial series of missions that may be needed to attack terrorist fighters and other U. S. Air forces with air superiority --
But there is still a need for maneuver, close air support and the ability to precisely destroy ground targets.
Recommendation: The real reason for China to establish a large-scale military air force official familiar with the experiment provides a detailed breakdown of the mission scenario currently being evaluated for reconnaissance fighters :-
Basic surface attack-evaluate impact accuracy using practice/laser hit/miss criteria-

-Assess the ability to discover, repair, track targets and participate in simulated combat targets when communicating with the Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC)-

-Assess aircraft endurance, range, ability to communicate with ground forces via unsafe and safe Radio and receive tactical updatesRescue Escort (RESCORT)
-Assess the amount of work the pilot is using helicopter operations, receive area updates and target data, use ballistic, non-guided/guided rockets and lasers

Capable aircraft are able to perform various tasks in less challenging or looser environments.
Recommendation: 8 million people may die in a war with North Korea. Some news reports suggest that the Air Force was impressed by the technological maturity of commercial products and that service officials themselves were not ready to comment on the initial findings.
