FRIDAY FOTO (July 28, 2017)

Desert Encounter.

FRIFO 7-28-2017 Stryker Apache

(U.S. Army photo by Private First Class Austin Anyzeski)

A U.S. Army AH-64 Apache helicopter assigned to the 4th Infantry Division’s 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team, flies over a simulated enemy armored vehicle during an engagement at National Training Center, Fort Irwin, California in the Mojave Desert. The “engagement” is part of an exercise to challenge the Brigade’s ability to defend against a near-peer opposing force. In other words, fighting another nation’s military rather than insurgents or terrorists. The photo was taken July 1, 2017.

To see the kind of training they do at this National Training Center, click here to see a short (3:23 minute) video with no narration. Or click here for a narrated 20:00 minute video.
