POTD: Exercise Rock Topside II

    POTD: Exercise Rock Topside II

    Photo Of The Day and the 173rd Airborne Brigade is back with some more images. We’re looking at platoon exercise evaluations in the Hohenfels Training Area (Germany) where The Rock and the 8e RPIMa from France spent some time together. The training was a part of Exercise Rock Topside II, taking place at the Joint Multinational Training Center in Hohenfels, Germany. Above we have a HK416F with an EOTech sight. Yellow means it’s been configured for training.

    The airborne assault kicks off the 10 days of tough training in squad and platoon collective skills while keeping safe in a COVID-19 environment. Overall, this training enhances the combat readiness and interoperability of both the U.S. military and it’s NATO allies.

    POTD, short for Photo Of The Day, is TFB’s recurring article series where we go to great lengths trying to find the best pictures and stories out there.
