The 320th Special Tactics Squadron conducted joint military free fall training with the Royal Thai Air Force Special Operations Regiment during Exercise Cobra Gold 2017, Feb. 14, 2017, at Korat Air Base, Thailand.

Special Tactics Airmen freefall into hostile or austere environments as an alternate insertion, when aircraft cannot land in enemy territory or rough terrain. Special Tactics Airmen train to land safely in a planned drop zone and conduct their mission, whether it be personnel recovery, airfield reconnaissance and establishment or special operations air integration.
