Army or Marine support has always been about close in support.Knocking a single sniper out of a building is overkill if you take out the whole building with a 1000 pounder..A small laser guided missile that will go through a window and mince everything inside without collateral damage is what they are looking at now..Eyes in the sky have a far better situational awareness than the grunts on the ground.
A-10s have landed missing wings and whole engines from enemy fire.
