A sniper team spots a patrol of Taliban fighters moving through an alley in Afghanistan. They start taking shots at the patrol to force them to maneuver out of the snipers line of fire and into a more open position. Shortly after, the A-10 makes an appearance and removes the Taliban from the field of battle by turning them from a solid into a liquid. Science rules, and so does combined arms.
Combined Arms is defined as an approach to warfare which seeks to integrate different combat arms of a military to achieve mutually complementary effects (for example, using infantry and armor in an urban environment, where one supports the other, or both support each other). It’s exactly what we see happening in this video.
