Assault Support Tactics Training at MAWTS-1


U.S. Marines and U.S. Navy sailors assigned to 3rd Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division participate during Assault Support Tactics 2 (AST-2), as part of Weapons and Tactics Instructors (WTI) course 2-23 at Observation Point Feets, Chocolate Mountain Aerial Gunnery Range, California, April 12, 2023.

WTI, hosted by MAWTS-1, is a seven-week course providing standardized advanced tactical training and certification of unit instructor qualifications to support Marine aviation training and readiness. AST-2 is a daytime, force-on-force event which affords prospective WTIs the opportunity to plan, brief, and execute a company-reinforced air assault while integrating the six functions of Marine Aviation.
