  • Capt. Samuel Kunst, left, a pilot with Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 366, briefs the pilots and crew before executing an artillery raid training exercise at Fort Bragg, N.C., March 13. In their facilities on Fort Bragg, HMH-366 and HMH-464 used low-tech expeditionary planning without the luxury of Power Point and projectors to create their flight plans. An artillery raid is a concept in which helicopters lift howitzers to forward firing points to gain a greater range advantage over the enemy. Helicopters then pull the artillery out before the enemy can retaliate.
