Fury, 2PARA Paratroopers Partner in Kenya, Improve Readiness and Interoperability

Fort Bragg-based paratroopers and British paratroopers continued to improve their readiness and interoperability in Kenya, Africa through a series of live-fire exercises.

Paratroopers from 1st Battalion, 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division and paratroopers from 2PARA, 16 Air Assault Brigade conducted a series of live-fire exercises late November in Kenya, Africa. The exercises included scenarios testing the paratroopers’ tactical skill and ability to work together.

The live-fire exercises were part of Operation Askari Storm, a multinational training exercise occurring in Kenya, Africa between U.S., British and other partner-nation forces. The training focuses on increasing the readiness and interoperability of the participating forces while placing them in tough, realistic scenarios against simulated near-peer adversaries.
