Home > Equipment > Army Equipment


Special Forces uses unique, specialized equipment to conduct their training and their operations. The SF community will often break ground on the new equipment and then, after a period of time, the regular conventional Army will adapt the equipment for its training and operations. So there is a lot of commonality among SF and conventional Army units. Listed on this page is equipment used by both Special Forces and the conventional Army.

Maneuver Aviation Fires Integrated Application (MAFIA). The piece of equipment will generate a precise grid coordinate to call for indirect fire and close air support. MAFIA allows small units to call for indirect fire or CAS. MAFIA is a fire support application that allows Fire Supporters at the company level or maneuver small unti leaders to accurately locate a target and to then engage that target with indirect fire, close air support, or attack aviation.
