Americans join exercise

First published in Forces focus by

AIRBORNE Reservists from 4th Battalion The Parachute Regiment (4 PARA) on Exercise Airdrop Warrior conducted joint parachute training alongside American counterparts on Salisbury Plain last week.

About 100 soldiers, both British and American, started the exercise by jumping into action from three Hercules transport planes. Once safely on the ground, the troops transitioned straight into a tactical scenario to practise their battlefield skills and drills. Troops also moved around the exercise area in Chinook helicopters.

A significant number of the soldiers training on this particular exercise have recently returned from Afghanistan, where they have been supporting front line units.
