    U.S., Japanese train on CROWS system

    U.S. Army Soldiers assigned to Dagger Company, 1-102nd Infantry Regiment (Mountain), Task Force Iron Gray, Combined Joint Task Force – Horn of Africa (CJTF-HOA), conduct weapons capabilities training and demonstrations to Japanese service members at the Djiboutian Range Complex, Djibouti, Oct. 23, 2021.

    The Dagger Company Soldiers explained the capabilities of the M2 .50 caliber machine gun and M240L machine and demonstrated a mounted gunnery exercise using the Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station (CROWS) mounted to a mine-resistant ambush protected (MRAP) all-terrain vehicle (M-ATV). The CROWS system allows a Soldier to remotely engage targets without leaving the protection of the vehicle.

    CJTF-HOA, operating from Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, regularly trains with and works alongside allied and partner nations, coalition forces and interagency/intergovernmental organizations to achieve a unified effort in East Africa.
