    no there is another career called Combat Control. In a nutshell they are ATC on ground with a weapon on front lines or beyond them.

    also, lots of good info and cool message boards at specialoperations.com

    word of advice, lurk for a while before posting - rules are much stricter and you'll get your dick whacked if you fuck around on those boards

    TACP are Air Force guys that do close air support for the Army. Combat Controllers do close air support, air traffic control, and control airborne/dropzone operations for SOCOM.

    Ah. Interesting. I know the TACP field intimately, but I hadn't heard of the other.
