Soldiers from the 1st Cavalry Division’s 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team recently fielded an electronic warfare tactical vehicle, one that will allow units and electronic warfare teams to sense and jam enemy communications.
The Army’s Rapid Equipping Force delivered the capability to the unit and conducted training in Yuma, Arizona, according to a news release.
“This effort will allow the ability for EW soldiers to influence future vehicle improvements and grow their knowledge,” Army Lt. Col. Scott Schumacher, chief of the Rapid Equipping Force solutions team, said in the release.

The Army is in the process of restoring EW capability from the tactical to the strategic level. READ MORE...
