Soldiers from the 4th Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division, train using Capability Set 13, or CS 13, at Fort Polk, La., March 2, 2013. The Soldiers are using a Humvee training set integrated with components of CS 13, mirroring the systems in the mine-resistant, ambush-protected vehicle, known as an MRAP, variants that the BCT will fall in on when they arrive in Operation Enduring Freedom. The unit will be the first to use CS 13, an on-the-move communications network that stays connected over vast distances, providing information throughout the brigade down to the lowest echelons.
