Abstract : The purpose of CCF 9 is to provide responsive and concentrated, air delivered, fire power in coordination with the fire and maneuver of the task force ground forces. The outcomes include: (1) GAS supports task force ground scheme of maneuver. (2) Air delivered firepower neutralizes enemy ability to counter ground maneuver. (3) Delivery of air fires does not interfere with other task force direct or indirect engagements. (4) Delivery of air fires does not interfere with task force maneuver. (5) Task force use of other supporting fires does not interfere with delivery of air fires. (6) Air delivered firepower does not result in fratracides to ground forces: and, there are no fratricides to friendly air forces.
