Operation Acid Gambit - Panama


Operation faisant partie de l'operation Just Cause


Citation :
Operation Just Cause, the U.S. invasion of Panama,
was launched at 0045, 20 December 1989.
The invasion force consisted of a massive wave of conventional
and airborne, and special operations forces. One vital aspect of
Just Cause, however, revolved around a single American
citizen, and the efforts of a small group of men to
rescue him from a certain death.

[...]



The Rescue



Upon hearing the sounds of gunfire (not from the snipers,
but from an attack on a PDF bus across the bay in
Fort Amador) Muse awoke with a start. As the heavy
caliber, staccato shooting continued, he realized
that something out of the ordinary was occurring and
quickly grabbed his clothes. As the remainder of an
estimated sixty rounds barked through the humid night
air, he made his way to the floor of his bathroom,
and peered around the corner to see anyone who might
be coming to his cell. As quickly as it had started,
however, it was over. Everything within the prison
went silent.




Muse then heard the familiar sound of combat boots running
up the steps. He realized then that these footsteps
might be those of the men who were going to kill him.
The men did not open his cell, however, but instead
ran towards the officers quarters across from his
cell. Muse listened as the PDF guards frantically
explained to their captain that something was going
on outside. The officers immediately raced downstairs
with the soldiers and began to defend the prison.




Almost immediately, the four Little Birds, each with four
commandos aboard, touched down on the roof of the
prison. The assault element raced off the outboard
pylons and towards the cupola. The door from the roof
to the interior of the prison was quickly opened with
a massive blast of explosive charges, and the team
quickly made its way down to the second floor. At
least two and possibly three guards were killed in
the few seconds it took for the team to race down
two flights of stairs to Muse’s cell. The four MH-6’s,
their cargo delivered, flew north where they maintained
a holding pattern and awaited the team’s call for
extraction.




Then, unexpectedly, the gunships received a "call for
fire" mission from the prison assault team. The
team was taking fire from the third floor of the Comandancia.
This caused the Spectres to immediately disengage
any targets they might be engaging to come to the
immediate assistance of the ground forces. Moments
later, the gunships engaged with their 40mm guns firing
specialized rounds through the tin roof of the Comandancia,
silencing the target.




Inside the prison, Muse listened to the sounds of battle
as explosions and small arms barked out. Smoke began
to fill the air, and then he noticed something. Thin,
white beams from the small flashlights mounted beneath
the assault teams’ weapons beamed through the darkness,
reflected by the smoke. An American voice barked through
the haze, directing Muse to take cover.




Muse ducked and moments later a small explosion blasted
the door open. A heavily armed Delta operator, clad
from head to toe in black protective assault gear,
rushed in and assisted Muse in putting on a Kevlar
helmet and flak vest. This done, he ushered Muse out
of his cell and the two moved quickly upwards towards
the roof. Passing a desk, Muse noticed that the man
assigned to kill him was dead. Muse also noticed,
to his amazement, that one guard had actually not
been killed, but instead had been bound and left on
the floor, cowering in the fetal position. This guard
had proven wiser than many of his compatriots - he
had not resisted the rescuers, and thus was not killed
outright.




Once on the roof, More commandos emerged and they all took
their positions on their helos, and promptly lifted
off. One element of the team would be stranded here
for a time until a Black Hawk could come and retrieve
them. Muse was placed in a protective location, between
two Delta operators. Immediately, however, one of
the two pilots on board Muse’s MH-6 noticed through
his night vision goggles that power lines were directly
in front of them. He immediately pulled up and over
the lines, however the demands on the heavily laden
aircraft caused it to quickly lose altitude and, for
a moment, it appeared that the Little Bird would crash
headlong into the street some sixty feet below. In
a remarkable feat of flying skill, the pilots managed
to avoid catastrophe and kept their aircraft aloft.


Yet, so damaged was the MH-6, that the pilot could maintain
only a few feet of altitude. Thus, he ended up "driving"
the helicopter down a narrow street, trying to put
distance between themselves and the prison. Landing
briefly at a courtyard between two apartment buildings,
the pilot then attempted to take off once again. This
effort paid off for a short time, however just moments
later they were again struck by bursts of gunfire.
The Little Bird careened off a wall and crashed onto
the street a short distance away and collapsed onto
its right side as its occupants bailed out the few
feet to the ground. As Muse and his bodyguard exited
the helicopter, however, one of the still-turning
rotor blades struck the commando in the head, knocking
him to the ground. Amazingly, the Delta operator,
his face covered with blood, regained consciousness
and immediately checked to ensure Muse had not been
injured. He then led Muse into the ground floor of
an adjacent apartment building to seek a more secure
location out of any potential line of fire.




Taking
up a defensive perimeter near an abandoned jeep, the
Delta team, with several of its members seriously
injured by gunfire and the crash landing, positioned
Muse in the safest possible location, and prepared
to return fire against the enemy. Muse, trained in
the use of small arms from his days in the Army, asked
for a weapon to assist in returning fire, and was
given a pistol by one of the operators. This team
held this position in the street for approximately
fifteen minutes until when, utilizing an infrared
strobe light, the team managed to signal aircraft
flying overhead. With their position fixed, then transmitted
to a nearby US Army patrol, it was armored personnel
carriers soon appeared to extract the team.




The Delta Force, 160th Special Operations Aviation
Group and AFSOC Spectre Gunship team had successfully
rescued Kurt Muse from certain death at the hands
of his Panamanian captors. In so doing they became
the first American counterterrorist team ever to rescue
an American hostage from enemy hands.

Army to switch 2 heavy brigades to Strykers


By Gina Cavallaro and Kris Osborn - Staff writers
Posted : Thursday Oct 1, 2009 11:16:42 EDT


Two heavy brigade combat teams will vanish by 2013 to make way for two new Stryker brigades, bringing the Army’s number of active SBCTs to eight and taking another bite out of its armor formations.

Planning documents obtained by Army Times say 1st Heavy Brigade Combat Team, 1st Armored Division at Fort Bliss, Texas, and 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment at Fort Hood, Texas, will be converted to SBCTs beginning in fiscal 2011 and fiscal 2012, respectively, and will take 24 months to become fully operational.

Another combat aviation brigade would be built, with aviation assets reallocated from the 3rd ACR’s Longknife Squadron, mostly AH-64D Apache Longbow attack helicopters, and tracked equipment and other assets of the heavy units to undergo conversion will be redistributed to the Army’s heavy BCTs as needed.

The move to convert two heavy brigades to Stryker units signals the Army’s shift toward a lighter, more quickly deployable formation that is infantry-focused and proven to be highly mobile in diverse environments.And it further reduces the Army’s number of heavy brigades.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates had announced in April that the Army would hold the total number of brigade combat teams at 45 rather than the planned 48, and the Army nixed a plan to grow three heavy brigades.The 1st HBCT, which is deploying to Iraq now, will begin its conversion in the first quarter of fiscal 2011, during the reset period after its fall 2010 redeployment.


The 3rd ACR redeployed from its third rotation to Iraq in January and no announcement has been made about its next deployment.But the Stryker plan calls for the 3rd ACR to begin its conversion in the first quarter of fiscal 2012 during the reset period following deployment.That would mean the unit will be receiving orders to deploy for a year beginning fall 2010.

EADS : 45 Eurocopter UH-72A commandés par le Pentagone pour 247 M$



La filiale nord-américaine d’EADS a reçu une nouvelle commande de la part du Pentagone pour quarante-cinq hélicoptères UH-72A, représentant une valeur de 247,2 millions de dollars. Le ministère américain de la Défense confirme ainsi une tranche de plus dans le cadre du contrat global, d’un montant potentiel de 3 milliards de dollars, signé en juillet 2006. Celui-ci prévoit jusqu’à 352 machines et s’est à l’heure actuelle concrétisé par l’achat de 128 appareils fabriqués par la filiale du groupe européen Eurocopter. Chaque année, le Pentagone notifie le nombre d’hélicoptères à livrer selon les besoins de l’armée de terre et de la garde nationale.

Destinés aux missions utilitaires (notamment transport de matériels et ravitaillements), ces hélicoptères légers (dérivés de l'EC145) sont produits sur les sites Eurocopter de Colombus (Mississippi) et de Grand Prairie (Texas). Fin 2008, l’US Navy avait également commandé cinq exemplaires UH-72A Lakota pour l’entraînement de ses pilotes. Un contrat de 24 millions de dollars.

Citation :

Washington - Le nombre de suicides dans l’armée de Terre américaine a atteint 160 en 2009, un nouveau record. Le Pentagone a évoqué "une année cruelle".


Des responsables de l’armée de Terre avaient averti que le nombre de suicides risquait de dépasser celui de 2008, qui était de 140. "Il ne fait aucun doute que 2009 a été une année cruelle pour l’armée de Terre en termes de suicides", a déclaré le colonel Christopher Philbrick, qui fait partie d’un groupe de travail pour la prévention des suicides au sein de l’armée. Les soldats sont soumis à rude épreuve par des années de conflit en Irak et en Afghanistan. Les officiers citent la fréquence des rotations sur le terrain et le stress des combats pour expliquer une hausse des dépressions et des problèmes de couples que connaissent les soldats. Mais les suicides ne sont pas forcément la conséquence de déploiements sur le terrain : les causes semblent varier selon les bases militaires, et environ un tiers des soldats qui se sont suicidés n’avaient jamais participé à des missions de combat en Irak ou en Afghanistan, selon l’armée, qui a effectué une enquête interne.
De hauts responsables de la défense en ont appelé aux officiers pour qu’ils fassent en sorte que les militaires ayant besoin d’une aide psychologique ne soient pas exposés au ridicule ou à des sanctions dans leur carrière.


L’armée a pris plusieurs initiatives pour tenter d’endiguer le problème, recrutant notamment des centaines de spécialistes de la santé mentale. Des responsables ont également fait part de leurs inquiétudes concernant les suicides d’anciens combattants.
