7CMBG conducted a two-part operation this past Friday. Beginning with the naval Battle of the Philippines Sea which focused on air to air combat and ship to ship combat with the cooperation of E-18. 7-Wing assisted with the landings by shooting down a number of Zeros and providing overall air superiority.
The second half of the operation focused on Operation Forger and the Marine ground invasion that was conducted. Along with the Marine ground invasion, ground troops were assisted by Sherman tanks on the ground invasion providing localized fire support and cover for advancing troops.
We're happy to announce that 7CMBG members will be taking part in the Canada Army Run this year! Because of our close connection to the real Canadian Military, we are here to do our part for them, and are forever grateful for their service and sacrifice.
With it being virtual this year, it gives us an opportunity as an online community from places in Canada and from around the world to participate in this awesome event together! If you'd like to help, check out this link!
Yesterday, MBdr K. Hebig and MCpl N.Mahoney hosted DP1-D (Artillery Det Training). 7CMBG members who attended were introduced to the Artillery Detachment.
They were taught Fire Discipline, as well as the operation of the 81mm Mortar and M777 Howitzer. This training is the first of many trainings for prospective applicants designed towards establishing a better understanding of 7CMBG's indirect fire support, as is key to establishing accurate, safe, and rapid use of this detachment in missions.
The training, held by Lt. E. Lamoureux, was focused on CF18s practice hitting GPS and Laser-Guided Targets. This practice also incorporated practice for the SLAYER callsigns and helped establish uniformity in the radio procedure for sending CAS 9-Lines for Fixed-Wing airframes.
7CMBG SLAYER callsigns were joined by E18's A. Harrington. This allowed him to gain further insight into CAS procedures, terminology, and radio control for jets in 7CMBG.
