US forces practiced with Raven drones.. Those assigned to the 332d Expeditionary Security Forces Squadron, were photographed with a Raven B “Digital Data Link” drone on January 24, 2018. Somewhere in Southwest Asia. “After takeoff, the Raven B uses battery power to patrol the air for 60-90 minutes at a time.”
It appears a Raven was also used in 2018 at Fort Benning “with the small unmanned aerial system (SUAS) course, teaches recruits from D Company, 2nd Battalion, 58th Infantry Regiment, about various drone aircrafts.” Another photo shows more recent drone throwing in 2020.
Other photos show the Raven being used by the Parachute Infantry Regiment, 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), 25th Infantry Division, U.S. Army Alaska, during an aerial vehicle during familiarization training at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska on Aug, 27, 2019.
SFAB guys also got the vehicle in 2017. A photo shows the “1st Security Force Assistance Brigade, prepares to launch the RQ-11B Raven unmanned aircraft system at a Master UAS Operator course Nov. 3, 2017 at Fort Benning, Ga.”
In another photo “United States Navy Special Warfare Combatant-Craft Crewmen from Naval Special Warfare launch an unmanned aerial system June 20, 2019 during a patrol on the Black Sea as part of Trojan Footprint 2019.”
