Airlifting artillery forward also raises the question of sustainment and ammunition - do you have enough airlift and/or can you keep it safe long enough to deliver enough ammunition to make a difference?
The 101st Airborne didn’t conduct any raids in Desert Storm. They sent the the division as a blocking force along with the 82nd ABN (by truck) and a French Division. At the time it was the largest and longest air mobile assault in history. I’m pretty sure that wasn’t considered a tactical move or a raid. Great article otherwise.
Ben I sent your write up to some retired general officers I know. All of them commanded in the 101st, two were brigade commanders and 2 had the entire division. Excellent job.
