An ANSF Soldier:”THAT unit that called in Air Support, no Afghan will ever call in or direct coalition aircraft. Period.”

“I can assure you that Afghan troops did NOT call in air support. Ive done two tours in Afghanistan and have worked closely with the ANSF. Most cant read, do not understand or use maps, have no concept of GPS and cannot use a compass. All essential tools for All Arms Call for Fire and calling in Close Air Support. They may have requested aircraft to assist them but they in no way possess the capability or skill to call in air support in any way shape or form. If they were partnered with a coalition force, then it was THAT unit that called in Air Support, no Afghan will ever call in or direct coalition aircraft. Period.”
