FILIPINO SOLDIERS TRAIN ON COMBAT SIMULATOR
MEMBERS of the 91st Brigade Reconnaissance Company, 1st Brigade Combat Team tested the combat simulator system used in the Joint Pacific Multinational Readiness Center Rotation 23-01 at the Schofield Barracks in Oahu, Hawaii.
The Maneuver Advisor Team of the US Army’s 5th Security Force Assistance Brigade facilitated the zeroing exercise for the Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System gear that will be worn by each soldier throughout the exercise.
MILES provides a realistic battlefield environment for soldiers involved in training exercises. The 5SFAB team likewise briefed 91BRC troops on the use of M4 rifles and M249 light machine guns equipped with infrared and visible aiming lasers.
91BRC joined training activities in Hawaii with the US Army’s 25th Infantry Division, joint components of the US Armed Forces and armies of partner nations.
The multinational exercise that will end on November 16, 2022 serves as a platform where Philippine Army troops and their American counterparts share tactics, techniques and procedures that enhance readiness and response capabilities during real-world challenges.
