CAS / FAC – Pt.09 – Type 3 addendum
For Type 3 CAS, there are a few minor differences. The check-in and SITREP are done as usual, however the game plan, 9-line and attacks will have some changes.
The game plan will state the Type 3, but could now also feature a time-sync.
This to ensure the FAC and CAS have their clocks set up correctly.
CAS-brief and attack(s)
While the 9-line remains largely the same, in the remarks, the FAC will coordinate the timings. So after the readback:
Readback correct, cleared to engage between 30 through 45, report IP inbound
Wilco, Rumble 31
The CAS aircraft will fly to the IP and call IP inbound. From that point on, the CAS aircraft has free reign.
During the engagement, calls of weapon release are to be made as usual.
Rumble 31, IP inbound
Rumble 31, 1 away, APC
Rumble 31, rifle T-55
Before the timeslot closes, the CAS aircraft is to be out of the AO and back at CP. This is to allow the next CAS aircraft to directly commence when their timeslot starts.
