SUSTAINING WAR-FIGHTING CAPABILITIES: 53IB CONDUCTS 2-GUN TRAINING

The Philippine Army’s 53rd Infantry “Matapat” Battalion (53IB) conducted 2-Gun Training as part of its Small Unit Leadership Development Training (SULDT) for its Scout Platoon last June 20 at Matapat Firing Range, 53IB Headquarters, Camp Sabido, Guipos, Zamboanga del Sur.

SULDT aims to empower the 53IB small-unit leaders to provide effective Command and Control while training to be physically fit and mentally tough.

The 2-Gun training will enhance the Matapat Troopers’ gun-switching capabilities, providing them the skills to react to various combat scenarios using their pistols and rifles.

This training forms part of 53IB’s drive to pursue transformation to become a world-class Army that is a source of national pride by 2028 in line with the Army Transformation Roadmap (ATR).
