    Marines from the 2nd Combat Engineer Battalion, Camp Lejeune, N.C., operate an Assault Breaching Vehicle with robotic operation capabilities at Yakima Training Center, Yakima, Wash., May 1, as part of Joint Warfighting Assessment 2019. Units participating in the assessment enhance their readiness while integrating and assessing innovative concepts and capabilities in a challenging operational environment. Robotics-equipped vehicles were field tested to determine their potential as an integrable concept for the Army and Marine Corps. The integration of robotics on the assault breaching vehicle would take Soldiers and Marines out of the most dangerous part of breaching an obstacle. “That is a very dangerous point to put Soldiers and Marines, especially when dealing with explosive obstacles,” said 1st Lt. David Aghakhan, AVB Platoon Commander, “This gives us the option to take the operator out of the vehicle, and still push that vehicle through the lane, creating that mobility for follow-on forces.” (U.S. Army Photo by Staff Sgt.
