They have their place, but assuming that you have the option of simply adding men and firepower to your assault element, swift and overwhelming is probably more likely.

A small band of PCs with awesome skills, but greatly reduced options for calling in reinforcements, is much more likely than a red ball mission for the armed forces of an entire superpower to rely on tactics that leverage personal expertise like this.
