POTD: Heavy Weapons Training with Green Berets By: Eric B


Photo Of The Day: What a “just in time” picture of a Green Beret with the 1st Special Forces Group (Airborne), as he fires an AT-4 anti-tank weapon during a heavy weapons rehearsal. The location was the Yakima Training Center, Wash., on Jun 24, 2022. This rehearsal provided an opportunity to fire both direct and indirect fire weapons which increases the team’s lethality.

Did you ever fire any of these heavy weapons?
