The 12th Annual Warrior Competition got underway with a bang, or to be more precise several bangs, earlier today at KASOTC in Jordan, reports Bob Morrison.
Following the formal Opening Ceremony in front of a grandstand full of VIPs and Honorary Guests, Special Operations Forces from several branches of the Kingdom’s military and security services mounted a spectacular dynamic display with live ammunition.
This multi-faceted operation was too complex to cover in any great detail with only a travel laptop to work on (and another four days of competitions and very early starts to contend with) so for the moment I am only bringing you a brief photographic flavour of this ‘SpecOps Olympics’. Once things hopefully calm down a little bit after Eurosatory 2022, which kicks off with a Media Preview in seven days time, I will return to the dynamic display in more detail. I also hope to bring an update tomorrow evening on the SCHADENFRUDE and F300 LOMAH Relay events. The TOP GUN live-firing event was the first of this week’s competitions and by tomorrow evening I hope to have the final results of this. It’s been an interesting couple of days out here so far, and it looks like there is a lot more in store. It’s great to be back at KASOTC… though just a little bit warmer this time around as the date has moved forward.
