JTACs integrates air power into ground special operations for mission success, deploying into forward hostile areas to control offensive airstrike operations.

JTACs direct aircraft for use during close-air support and offensive operations from a forward position.

The JTACs worked with A-10 Thunderbolt II attack aircraft to accomplish live-fire training. The A-10 has excellent maneuverability at low air speeds and altitude, and is a highly accurate and survivable weapons-delivery platform.
