Soldiers with 1st Battalion, 66th Armor Regiment, 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, conduct mortar training and evaluation (MORTEP) certification on Aug. 12 at Fort Carson.

MORTEP tests mortar teams on their abilities to safely and accurately employ their weapon systems. The mortar systems used in an armored combat team formation such as 3rd ABCT are unique as they can be fired both mounted in the M1064A3 mortar carrier or dismounted. The battalion's training was conducted Aug. 10-12.
