Taliban fighters are moving towards an ambush site when they are spotted by an observation balloon cam. The patrol is confirmed as Taliban when the fighters weapons are visibly identified, and they are spotted moving in the direction of a nearby coalition patrol.
Instead of waiting for them to set up an ambush, an A-10 is called in for support, and it does what the A-10 does best. It completely removes the fighters from the face of the Earth.
