The largest live-fire exercise on the ground was reduced by Corona Impact may 23 at 13:39
The Ground Self-Defense Force conducted a large-scale live-fire exercise at an exercise site in Shizuoka Prefecture. In order to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus, the scale of the new coronavirus has been drastically reduced and the public has been discontinued.
The Fuji General Fire Power Exercise is the largest live-fire exercise conducted annually by the Ground Self-Defense Force at the Higashifuji Exercise Ground in Shizuoka Prefecture.
In order to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus, the exercise sought to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus, and in principle canceled the participation of troops other than Shizuoka Prefecture, reducing the size of the crew from about 1,000 people last year to approximately 1,000, and stopped the general public.
The exercises were conducted on the assumption that the remote islands had been invaded, but the amphibious task force of the core landing operations and the first airborne force performing parachute descents did not participate because of troops outside the prefecture, and instead the footage was introduced.
Although the number of tanks and artillery has been greatly reduced, the number of rounds and ammunition has increased, resulting in approximately 19 tons of ammunition and 360 million yen in value, and the Ground Self-Defense Force has increased the educational effect of its members as much as possible, even though there are restrictions on the exercises.
