I think many of those things he refers to are also fulfilled by the force attack.

Yes, you can use that too to destroy certain objects in the game like tank wrecks and buildings (and will be a bit more accurate) but with the attack ground command you can also target other objects that can't be attacked directly or by pressing A(or clicking the button) + click on it. The force attack also requires you to have uninterrupted line of sight so for long range units like AT guns and mortars using attack ground is normally safer because those will pack up and close in if they don't have direct vision on it and if the unit providing the vision moves away.
So they are very different (but both very useful) tools that share a few common uses.

attack ground can also be used to counter fire on an enemy mortar or field gun if you need longer fire than the barrage or it's on cooldown.

Didn't think about taking advantage of the scatter mechanics by aiming to the side with attack ground. Great idea.
