We hope you’re having a fantastic day! Today we’re taking you to Djibouti for some sniping. We have French Forces and Italian Armed Forces, alongside Virginia Army National Guard soldiers assigned to Task Force Red Dragon, Combined Joint Task Force – Horn of Africa. They’re conducting a sniper live-fire exercise at the Arta Range Complex.
French, Italian, and U.S. service members cross-trained on weapon systems and exchanged information during this joint training event. Members of CJTF-HOA regularly train and work alongside allies, partners, and government organizations to achieve a unified effort to improve safety, security and prosperity in East Africa.
I’d be a little careful where I placed my rifle and gear, as it looks like there’s a potential for things to start rolling downhill.
We hope you liked this set of photos. Please check back tomorrow for a new bunch of articles, reviews and images.
