You do realize that aerial, indirect fire (ie- Howitzer), and some direct fire even from aerial craft (mounted rocket / M2) require large targets and
avenues of approach.
Imagine this scenario:
New aircraft and targeting technology is to be tested.
Objective : To elucidate whether new technology is viable in locating, and erradicating enemy threat without any outside targetting or coordinating
Scenario : Test craft will utilize north to south approach from vicinity grid xxxx xxxx, and make movement bearing south xx degrees from XYZ AFB. Unit
will discern target marked ABCD, from targets EFG, HIJ, LMN, OPQ, and RST. Targets are spread througout XXX type terrain and could possibly be
camoflauged using unknown methods. At your disposal is XXX technology, now under preliminary testing phases. This technology's stated capabilities
are the ability to differentiate between targets using these types of camoflauge techniques. When mission complete, establish comms using XXX
technology. If comms fail, revert to FH XXX.X on normal brigade net in the event of a follow on mission.
Scenario Two : Mission Complete, follow on is as follows. Report of XXX hostile in vicinity grid XXX XXX, camoflauge technique unknown. Seek and
destroy, description is as follows .... xxxxxx ..... use extreme caution, relay photography of target back to brigade before any action taken. Utilize
XXX stealth technology to remain undetectable. This technology is not garunteed and is in testing phase, should you become detected RTB. If confirmed
to be hostile threat, brigade will make the call to kill or disable. Make no action without authorization. Nothing follows XXXXXXXX
