Exercise Combined Resolve II

US Soldiers from 1st Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division during the live firing exercise which included M1 Abrams, Bradleys, Apaches, Artillery and Infantry.

Note (see last GIF): A mine-clearing line charge ( MCLC or “mick lick”) is used to create a breach in minefields under combat conditions, basically a missile dragging a line of explosives across the ground to be detonated and clear out any nearby mines.
