02 Jan Cross-country training in the deep sands around the River Niger
As part of a Malian Armed Forces Tactical Driver’s course at Koulikoro Training Camp, EUTM Mali’s instructors taught a series of advanced techniques to enthusiastic students. These included how to react to an ambush and how to drive in very rough terrain. A key part of the training was ensuring the Malians knew how to and, especially, when to use 4-wheel drive. To give the students a realistic impression, the cross-country training was conducted in the deep sands around the River Niger.
