‘Death from Below’ practices primary mission

Flames blow out of the launcher as Cpl. Nicholas Zeien, a gunner with 2nd Low Altitude Air Defense Battalion, fires a PL-87 Stinger missile at a drone flying off of Onslow Beach on Camp Lejeune during the second day of the battalion’s live-fire exercise April 17. The Stinger has a range of more than 6 kilometers and weighs more than 34 pounds. The missile can be fired from the shoulder firing system, a vehicle-mounted firing system or an aircraft.
