(VIDEO) U.S. Army Air Cavalry Units Conduct Live-Fire Air Assault Exercises In South Korea
When the U.S. Army needs to seize and hold key terrain which has not been fully secured and to directly engage enemy forces behind enemy lines, and the use of armored vehicles is inaccessible or strategically inadequate, it’s time for the air cavalry. Helicopter equipped units capable of performing reconnaissance, security, and economy of force missions, U.S. Army Air Cavalry units are of incalculable value to any commander. These air-assault units are infantry trained troops that receive training in rappelling and air transportation, with equipment that is sometimes designed or field-modified to allow better transportation within an aircraft.
Like the U.S. Army Air Cavalry units from 2nd Battalion, 12th Regiment and 1st Squadron, 17th Regiment. Paratroopers conducting live-fire air assault training at Rodriguez Live Fire Range in South Korea. Just in case the little cry baby in the North thinks we can’t get to him in a heartbeat.
