Artifact Details

During the battle of Tora Bora, the Special Operations Forces Laser Marker ensured that the Special Forces team could accurately carry out airstrikes.

US Special Operations Forces in Afghanistan used the AN/PEQ-1A SOFLAM to direct exact delivery of ordnance.  The SOFLAM was an important tool in the battle for Tora Bora where a CIA‑US Special Forces team directed 72 hours of unrelenting air strikes -sometimes dangerously close to their own position -killing hundreds of al‑Qa’ida terrorists.
