A-10 Thunderbolt II DID has now updated our January 4, 2006 article “ROVER Sics TacAir on America’s Enemies.” DID described the Remotely Operated Video Enhanced Receiver (ROVER) system, and the major changes it was bringing to tactical air support. DID has modified that article to include comments by USAF Lt. Gen. Walter E. Buchanan III, commander of 9th Air Force and US Central Command Air Forces. General Buchanan vividly illustrated the complications and workarounds inherent in previous way of doing things as he discussed the 2004 Battle of Fallujah in the January 2006 issue of Air Force Magazine.
