I don't understand what you are saying that ortillery  will take longer
than ground based? (Could be depending on how many assetts they are
covering). Maybe my intial statement wasn't very clear: I believe
groundbased fire support will be more accurate and relaible than
though maybe not as powerful or convenient in the early stages of an
invasion. Everyone around here seems to wave a hand non-chalantly, oh
resistance will be futile when you won orbit. That's a load of major
bullshit. Unless you are in one of the few circumstances where you just
don't give a fuck about anything on the planet and you have no political
restraints on anything and you have perfect intelligence and and and....
hey we can obtain air supremacy over most any nation in the world right
including really small insignificant ones that can't fight back but it
doesn't seem to  scare them to often.
