Simulating chaos, combat to ensure global security in Estonia

An Air Force combat controller with the 321st Special Tactics Squadron takes cover from simulated gunfire during close air support training as local children play nearby, Aug. 8, 2017, in Rakevere, Estonia. Throughout the scenario, instructors inundated the controllers with information and chaos -- constantly moving through the village and coordinating simulated airstrikes with A-10s overhead.
