In the past, with only the tactical Battlefield Airmen tied into ground planning, operational-level planners usually got no more than 48 hours warning of major ground operations, the typical turn in time for joint air support requests (formerly known as air support requests).
So air support requests either went directly from the field to tactical aircraft or directly from air liaison officers back to the regional Luftwaffe headquarters.
There was also a special radio network to handle the air support requests in a timely fashion.
This posed problems when air-savvy ground controllers sent air support requests to the task force.
