He must constantly target and how he will directhis aircraftaga3.nst it so that when his planes is made, report in statingtheir armament load, and the final targetselection his dirkctions will be prompt and as brief as claritywill permit. He should anticipate the arrivalof his scheduled flightsand be monitoring the "'reparting" frequency. Monitorjng the reportingfreqlancy is very important in arder that the flightleadermay obtairprompt inattuctions.&hen the controller is in on the spare Working a flight,he sh0Ql.d hove his radio operator listening equipment, if available, or on the AE/TRC-7,in order that he can inform the The, controller can switah controller tien a flight calls in far 'instzucti0as. frequencies munentarily to give a "standby:' or directthe flightback to the next higher controller.Even when there are no targetsit is impcrtant to m@nitor the "reporting" net in order to be able to redirectaircraftprcanptly. c* After the targethas been described it will be initially located
by referenceto UIM Grid Coordinates. As the aircraft begin their attack,he
must carefully scrutinize the final approach, giving continuous directions
with referenceto prominent landmarks and if it ap.pzars that the wrong target
some will be structk, he must call off the attack? It may be n3cessar-y cases to requiree dry run, and in many cases the mosquitoaircraft must be called upon to assistin findingthe target or to point the way, Army Liaison type aircraft(L-5) (L-17)will not be used for controlling our planesexcept under very exceptional conditicns and when such cases do occur,the circunstanceswill be reportedto the ALO who will make a report to this headquarters. The ForwardAir Controller must be an AI? pilot thoroughly familicrwith our aircraft. The liaisonpiiots are not adapt in ovr procedures, are not familiar with cunacnications problems, and in their enthusiasm have been known to s. call aircraftaww from a vital targefto attack a less lucrativeone selected by the liaisonobserver. Homver, their rcdiced adviceis valuable to the army and is used extensively by them in targetselection. The army when requested,will assistin markingtargetsby smoke,and friendlytroopsby panela.

d. The reasons for being prctnptand con&iSe are apparent when it is realized that the f3.ghter, particularly a jet is,Limited in ehdurence. He has only a short time to stay in the area before it becomes necessary to return to his base. If he begins to run lov on fuel his w@k becomes hasty and haphaThen, to, wasting time over zard with resulting inaccuracy against the emmy. the target is inefficient use of the aircraft, adds extra, tiring time to the Pilots flying, and keeps him unnecessarily long circling at low altitude where he is a cripple for light flfikand hostile fighters. Xhen it is necessary to have aircraft circle to keep the enemy pinned, that type of mission will heve been requested instead of close support. Our present VW-l's are equipped with the SCR-522 radio which permits 4 radio channels only for voice canmunications. This is an additional reason fcr stressing brevity and clear instructions. No unnecessary chatter should take place, such as long congratulstory
or abusive messages or inquiries about the boys back in the group.
Ccmmunice&ions - Communications frequencies will be established by 8. ^--.-

The CdL unit, these tail signs to be assumed by the TACP assigned.
9. Mainten.a_nc? - ab
The condition of automotive and radioequipment determines whether a TACP can operate. The automotive equinment must be well
maintained (the jeep engine provides power for the radio) and ready to move
immediately when the Command Post moves. Field maintenance ~5.11be difficult
and many hours must be spent on it. Ercrusted mud must be removed and vehicles
washed to allow lubrication and inspection for defects. The army regiments
or divisions, although not required to do so, will assist on maintenance and
repair and will supply such parts as tires, spark plugs, and batteries, but
for the most part, needed supplies must be procured thru the Air Liaison Offi-
b. Operative radio equipment is vital. Mechanics must be thoroughly
qualified to install the radios, align frequencies, change tubes, trace circuits, and ma& other minor repairs. He must have a frequency meter and other tools for performing these functions as the frequencies will nearly always go out of alignment after driving the AN/VRC-1 even for a short distance* Driving the jeep over roqh terrain may also cause internal damage. It is therefore exceedingly important that the equiument be moved only when it is mandatory to move it and never purely for personal. conveniences. A small stock of spares should be kept on hand and when new sets are required, the sir Liaison Officer will arrange to have this equipment brought by an L-5. 10. Summary - The responsibilities of the TAG3 cannot be over-stressed, The success of one mission may result in the winning of important objectives; its failure mayresult in the loss of important positions and in the unnecessary loss of many lives. Constant vigilance, patience, endurance, initiative and courage are necessary to insure the successof our mission in close support.
