Naval support. Naval assets offshore may provide fire support of base defenses. Close air support,
coastal patrols, and naval gunfire may assist in securing ports and bases within range of naval assets.
The TA RTOC will commence coordination between physical security units (MPs) of the coastal
facilities and Navy assets.
Marine support. Dependent on the theater needs, Marines may be present within the theater. They
may be used as a TCF to support the theater. Marine artillery and close air support assets in the rear
area can also be used to assist critical bases that are in range of Marine artillery.
Air Force support. The Air Force will maintain air lines of communications (ALOC) into the theater. Air
Force SP will be assigned as base defense for the air bases. These SP will conduct patrols on the air
base under the control of the air base commander. The ASG RTOC will coordinate through local MPS
to establish areas of responsibility between Army MP and SP on the air base. Air defense artillery may
be placed to defend the air bases. Detailed planning and integration between the RTOC and the air
base ground defense commander must be conducted to provide in-depth security of the air base. Air
Force assets supporting these bases may be used to combat a Level II or Level III threat on the air
bases. The Air Force liaison officer of the AASG RTOC can effect this coordination.
