    In recent news Army General Richard Clarke, Head of Special Operations Command (SOCOM), stated that the procurement of light attack aircraft will “help our special operators on the ground” with close air support and in identifying friendly forces, as well as protecting allied forces from enemy attack. Many US allies are developing their own light attack aircraft, therefore the US having their own aircraft would help in training with its partners. (Source:
