A Close Air Support mission is, as the name says, focused on helping a ground attack force before, during and after a battle.

Dedicated air units (especially Gunships, but some bombers - as the UEF T1 Attack Bomber with its area of effect bombs or the Aeon T3 Strategic Bomber with the tracking bomb - can also be very useful) act as support to the main ground attack force by scouting ahead and engaging opposing forces prior to ground contact, by focusing on key units such as Missile Artillery or Shield Generators as the ground armies meet, and by mopping up the remaining enemy force in case of victory or covering friendly disengagement in the event of defeat. Some vehicles (Transports or UEF T2 Gunships) can also help friendly units movement by loading them and providing fast transport to critical spots.
