Precision air delivery is a gift from the sky when it comes to resupplying front line or hard to reach units. As the lessons learned from the operations in Afghanistan have shown, 10-15% of the USMC casualties occurred during the resupplying of units, forward operating bases and outposts with food and water. It is, therefore, easily understood how important it is to be able to deliver supplies to these forces without exposing others to the enemy activity.
