Day two kicked off Tuesday morning, June 14, 2022 at the La Venta shooting range near Tegucigalpa, Honduras. International commandos gathered in the early morning sunlight equipped with their weapon kits and live ammunition to be challenged by three tactical relays called Assaulter Stages. Each of the relays tested the combatant’s ability to advance on an enemy, perform under duress and accurately take out targets. In the afternoon, the Sniper event was conducted. Two members from each team displayed their ability to hit targets at long range.

By day’s end, Honduras continued to lead the skills competition at number one, followed by multi-championship winner, Columbia and in third, the Guatemalans. The U.S. team made a significant gainw from the 12th spot to the fifth spot at the end of day two. Other teams that improved their rankings on the second day were Bahamas, Brazil, Panama and Jamaica.

Partner nations competing in Fuerzas Comando 2022 are provided the opportunity to learn from each other and refine their unit tactics. By increasing their special operations capabilities, countries become more capable of confronting common threats. 

SOCSOUTH, headquartered at Homestead Air Reserve Base, Fla., is the lead U.S. executing command for the exercise. SOCSOUTH serves as the special operations component for U.S. Southern Command.
