10 Sep EUTM Mali and the MaAF execute D-30 Howitzer firing
On request of the Malian Armed Forces (MaAF) the Education and Training Task Force (ETTF) of the EUTM Mali mission provides training for artillery platoons and mortar crews.
During the second part of the course, live firings are organized. This week EUTM Mali and the MaAF executed D-30 Howitzer firing. The organisation of the firings is also part of the course, according to the “train the trainer concept” educated by ETTF and therefore the responsibility of the Malian platoon leaders. The MaAF proved to be self-sustainable during the training.
