International Special Operations Exercise 2016


As part of the 2016 Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC), held at the Tampa Convention Center, U.S. and international Special Operations Forces participated in a capabilities demonstration. The exercise included Black Hawk and Little Bird Helicopters, boats, Army rangers, a SEAL team and snipers. During the mock scenario, Mayor Bob Buckhorn was “held hostage” and later “rescued” by the highly skilled commandos of the international Special Operations Forces.
