The organization of this FPT is not only important to test the team management as well as the ability and competence of members in carrying out live ammunition training. In fact, it is also the best platform to demonstrate the ability of TDM members in operating sophisticated and state-of-the-art vehicle and armament platforms professionally as the training is provided.
