Afghanistan - Operation Enduring Freedom
Coalition Airpower conducted 74 close-air-support missions
  • USAF A-10s and F-15Es and a Navy F/A-18C[N] (VFA 83 or 131) employed a variety of munitions during an engagement near Oruzgan (Google Maps). The strikes, using various GBU munitions, general purpose 500-pound bombs and cannon strafes, targeted anti-Afghan forces who were detected preparing for an attack on an Afghan and Coalition unit. A convoy vehicle had been hit by an IED, prompting the ground forces commander to call in air support.
  • In the vicinity of Lashkar Gah (Google Maps), an F/A-18E (VFA 143) was called in by a Coalition and Afghan unit after they began taking enemy RPG, rifle and mortar fire. The jet made a strafing run against enemy personnel in an open field, putting a stop to hostile fire. An F/A-18F (VFA 103) had conducted shows of force to suppress enemy forces action prior to the strike.
  • Near Chahar Bagh (Google Maps) an F/A-18F (VFA 103) responded after an Afghan National Army unit began receiving small arms fire. The Super Hornet's maneuver reduced enemy fire and gave the Afghan soldiers freedom to maneuver.
  • In Sangin (Google Maps), an F/A-18C (VFA 83 or 131) intervened with a show of force after an anti-Afghan forces ambush in which an Afghan government convoy took multiple hits from IEDs and was subjected to heavy fire from concealed gunmen in surrounding buildings. The maneuver stopped the attack, allowing the convoy to pull back to safety.
