An air strike[1] is a military strike by air forces or other military aviation assets against either a suspected or a confirmed enemy ground position. Air strikes are commonly delivered from aircraft such as bombers, ground attack aircraft, strike fighters, and attack helicopters. Weapons used in an airstrike can range from machine gun bullets, missiles, to various types of bombs. Air strikes are sometimes initiated in strategic bombings, but the term generally refers to tactical intervention by airpower on the battlefield.
Air strikes may be followed by artillery, armor, or infantry assaults, dependent on the military situation at hand. Air strikes are commonly used when ground attacks are ineffective, when ground forces need to be used in conjunction with close air support, or when public opinion in the nation or around the world would not support a ground attack[citation needed].
Air strikes are controlled by trained observers, often translating the requests of ground troops. The coordination and authorization of air strikes is carried out at command levels to ensure minimal "collateral damage" or "fratricidal fire".[
