Between 30 April and 4 May, the 9th Annual Warrior Competition, an international competition of Special Operation Forces is held in Jordan. Taking part in this competition is the 102nd Reconnaissance Battalion of the Czech Republic Army.
Every year, this event is attended by the representatives of the armed forces from both the Jordanian home team and teams from other countries. The competitors have a unique opportunity to match their strength with top soldiers from foreign units. This year, the Czech Republic Army team will “battle” with 22 other teams from 13 countries (China, India, South Africa, Jordan, Lebanon, Portugal, Romania, Greece, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Sudan, Thailand, and the USA).
The competition will take place in one of the largest and most modern combat training facilities in the world, located in the Jordanian capital, Amman. The site provides a wide range of scenarios for the individual events, including sniper shooting, hostage release from a hijacked plane, abseiling from helicopter, etc. This event is the ideal opportunity for soldiers to exchange experience across different nations while each task constitutes a challenging test for both the soldiers and their equipment.
The Czech Republic Army team will be competing with CZ’ most advanced weapons, namely the CZ BREN 2 assault rifle and the CZ P-10 C pistol. In the past few months, CZ and the Army of the Czech Republic have established closer cooperation, with members of the 102nd Reconnaissance Battalion involved in the comprehensive testing of weapons from CZ’ production.
