June 19, 2020
June 16, 2020 - U.S. Army Paratroopers assigned to the 1st Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment, 173rd Airborne Brigade participate in urban operations training under Covid-19 prevention condition at Caserma Ederle Range in Vicenza, Italy. The top scene shows the paratroopers stealthly approaching a building with rifles ready in preparation to enter and conduct an assault within it where they react to enemy contact and initiate their response. The training simulates urban warfare situations that they may find themselves in when deployed to an urban area.
The 173rd Airborne Brigade is the U.S. Army's Contingency Response Force in Europe, providing rapidly deployable forces to the United States Europe, Africa and Central Command areas of responsibility. Forward deployed across Italy and Germany, the brigade routinely trains alongside NATO allies and partners to build partnerships and strengthen the alliance.
