Afghanistan - Operation Enduring Freedom
Coalition Airpower conducted 83 close-air-support missions
  • In the vicinity of Kandahar (Google Maps), F/A-18Fs (VFA 103) dived into a firefight, putting Vulcan cannon strafes onto anti-Afghan positions in a treeline. Enemy fire was reduced but not stopped, prompting the JTAC to call for follow-up strikes with GBU-38s and additional gun passes. The jets cleared the treeline then stopped a second enemy force along a ridgeline before they could launch a counterattack. Coalition ground troops confirmed the Taliban force's commander was killed during the engagement.
