Between 30th April and 4th May, 2017, 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 thirteen countries (China, India, South Africa, Jordan, Lebanon, Portugal, Romania, Greece, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Sudan, Thailand and the USA).
The competition is taking 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 is competing with the currently most advanced weapons from CZ, namely the CZ BREN 2 assault rifles and the latest weapon introduced this year, 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.
As the main sponsor of the competition, CZ is keeping their fingers crossed for the Czech national team.
