2015 ROK Integrated Live Fire Exercise

I've had this link sitting around on my desktop for a couple of weeks. I don't remember where I first saw it, though it was probably Ace of Spades.

2015 Integrated Live Fire Exercise

It's interesting in general terms, of course, but it's particularly interesting to us right now because a lot of the weapons they use are the same ones that are featured in GATE. South Korea is using older gear, a lot of which they got as handoffs from the US Army and US Airforce. So they have Cobra gunships and Phantom jets in this video, for instance.

There's also newer stuff, like F-16's. But it's all interesting.

Yes, it does look like the same Youtube that Ace linked to.  I was startled at seeing the F-5 Freedom Fighters, since I though the ROKAF had removed them from service, but it appears that they are soldiering on for a while.  Then we see the most advanced version of the F-15 in service (Which is not even taking into account the changes that Boeing had proposed when the ROKAF was taking a look at what became the F-15K.), M270 firing both rockets and ATACMS, armored combat engineering vehicles firing their demolition howitzers (Perhaps even better than a PGM at knocking down masonry structures.), and the MD 500 light helicopters, which the North Koreans also managed to acquire some apparently with to aid with their attempts at infiltrating the ROK.

Then we have the usual SPA, SPAAG, MBTs, gunships and fighter bombers in the mix...

2 The A-10 is American, certainly. Hit a bit to the right of the target, too.
