The PL-87 Stinger Missile begins launching out of the launcher as a Marine attempts to take down a flying drone at Onslow Beach on Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune during the night fire portion of the 2nd Low Altitude Air Defense Battalion’s live stinger fire exercise April 17. “We never know when an enemy may attack,” said Cpl. Nicholas J. Torcia, a LAAD gunner with the battalion. “The night shoot just provides the shooter an extra confidence with this weapon system.”
