For more than a month, Soldiers from the 210th Field Artillery Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division/ROK-U.S. Combined Division, trained alongside their joint and combined partners for their debut participation in the Republic of Korea’s Army Integrated Firepower demonstrations near Pocheon, South Korea.
The massive capability demonstrations were conducted for public viewing five times throughout the month and included a variety of assets from both the U.S. Army and Air Force. In addition to the tanks, helicopters and jets previously seen in these events, this year’s lineup showcased the brigade’s Multiple Launch Rocket Systems and Paladin self-propelled howitzers. A clear message not only to the loony in North Korea, but also to the Chinese neighbors down to the southwest.
Should the U.S. let the South Korean and Japanese take more control of their AOI? Sound off and share your opinions and comments in the section below.
