Afghanistan, Libya and Mali all proved the continuing importance of precision strike. However, as operations draw to a close, lessons learned must be consolidated and incorporated into the planning and development of future FAC/JTAC coordinated missions. Especially now as NATO forces return to contingency with a focus on conventional warfare/major combat operations, a revised approach is taking place to which forces must adapt.
And with limited resources and dwindling live training assets, nations are now looking to alternative solutions for the smart and effective training of FAC/JTACs. Simulation technology is at the fore and is also proving to be a useful tool in promoting greater international interoperability in CAS operations, with the move towards networked simulation.
