- Air assault : Military operations in which infantry are carried by aircraft onto, or very near, the target, or by parachuting. The aircraft may be helicopters, tilt-rotor aircraft, short-landing transports, or, historically, gliders.
- Air defense artillery : A combat arms branch of the United States Army, responsible for defending ground forces and the continental United States against aircraft and missile attack
- Antipersonnel cluster submunition : Destructive devices, released by a cluster munition, which are principally designed to injure or kill people; "dual-purpose" submunitions can also penetrate walls and light armor
- Battalion : Military formation of defined size, equipment, and organization, traditionally specialized for one function, such as infantry, artillery, transportation or intelligence; usually commanded by a lieutenant colonel; combat arms battalions may have 500-1000 soldiers; they are more mixed in function under the Restructuring of the United States Army
- Battery (artillery) : The basic tactical organization for artillery units, consisting, in modern militaries, of a group of multiple rocket launchers, howitzers, or guided missile launchers that will be under common control and often fire at the same target
- Battery (disambiguation) : Add brief definition or description
- Battery (military unit) : The basic tactical unit of artillery, with a homogeneous function such as firing an artillery piece or providing ammunition
- Cannon : Sizable crew-served weapons, which fire projectiles through a tube called a barrel.
- Circular error probability : The most common metric of how close to a target a weapon will strike: the radius of a circle, centered on the mean impact point, in which half the projectiles of that weapon will hit
- Cluster munition : A military weapon, fired or dropped from another weapon, that releases smaller submunitions that cause the actual destructive effect
- Counterbattery : Defense against enemy artillery involving identifying the point of origin of hostile fire and directing lethal force against it
- Dien Bien Phu : Site in northern Vietnam of a 1954 decisive battle that soon forced France to relinquish control of colonial Indochina.
- Guided missile : A weapon that flies through air or space, under its own power, which adjusts its course to hit its target.
- Indirect fire : Weapons fire that is fired in an arc such that the projectile rises above the target elevation and descends to hit the target
- Infantry : Soldiers that directly confront the enemy, overcoming them with fire and maneuver while on foot or in specialized vehicles
- Katyusha rocket : Specifically a Soviet Second World War area bombardment unguided rocket fired from truck-mounted multiple rocket launchers; generic term for 120-130mm rockets launched either in salvos or from improvised single launchers; succeeded by GRAD rocket
- Korean War of 1592-1598 : Fought on the Korean peninsula from 1592 to 1598 between Japan and the Chinese tributary alliance (Korea, China, Ryukyus, Java, etc.), and resulted in Japanese retreat.
- Landing Craft Rocket : Second World War vessel for a variant of naval gunfire support in amphibious warfare. Along with the landing craft carrying troops, some landing craft would be filled with rows of multiple rocket launchers, so that a massive amount of fire could be delivered alongside or just ahead of the troops, stunning defenders that survived.
- Landing Craft Utility : A large landing craft type that is not tightly dependent on an amphibious warfare ship for support, but can sail for 10 days as a coastal transport
- Landing craft : A boat or other self-propelled watercraft, carried aboard a ship, intended for amphibious warfare or similar operations where landings at a prepared seaport are not practical. Such a craft may discharge troops or equipment on the beach, or may be capable of independent movement on land.
- : A U.S. dual-purpose cluster submunition dispersed by the M26 unguided rocket fired from the M270 multiple launch rocket system
- Naval gunfire support : naval gun, unguided rocket, and guided missile fire from ships, in direct support of ground forces; does not include close air support even if the aircraft fly from ships
- Operation DESERT SABRE : That part of the Gulf War that began when conventional units of the Coalition crossed the Kuwaiti or Iraqi border, and ended with the cease-fire.
