Paratroopers Brigade Reconnaissance Batallion in Live-Fire Drill

December 16, 2012

 

They don't just parachute: the Paratroopers Brigade's Reconnaissance Battalion practice urban warfare in a live-fire drill, meant to stimulate the reality of fighting in densely populated areas. During the exercise, the combat engineering company practiced taking over a building, all the while taking care to minimize uninvolved casualties.
