2nd Tanks conducts training with UAVs

An RQ-11 Raven Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, from 2nd Tank Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, lays on the observation tower during a training exercise with M1A1 Abrams Main Battle Tanks, Oct. 15, 2013. “The Ravens give you a good birds-eye view, they receive reconnaissance that can be too far out to see,” said Cpl. Peter J. Richter, a Raven operator with Scouts, 2nd Tanks, and Native of Dexter, Mich. “They also are very good for locating and navigating bad terrain such as swamps.”
