Enter the Heroic Troops to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea丨Destroy the US Army's "First Cavalry Division" and kill 3,752 people

  On April 11, 1951, the No. 139th Infantry Division of the 47th Group Army crossed the Yalu River into North Korea.

In the three years of participating in the war in North Korea, the troop fought dozens of times with the U.S. trump card "First Cavalry Division" and killed 3,752 enemies, known as the "tiger brigade."

Over the past 70 years, this unit has continuously used the spirit of resisting US aggression and aid to Korea to temper the loyal character of officers and soldiers, forging and winning steel and iron bones, and launching rounds of new assaults on the new journey of strengthening the army.

  The commander of the artillery group of a certain brigade of the 77th Army raised high: 237 at the table, direction 27-82, the whole battalion fired a salvo to load.

  A few days ago, an actual combat drill was launched under the Helan Mountain. Under the cover of long-range firepower, the Red Army ground assault group quickly launched an attack on the enemy's front in three directions.

  Lin Baojun, company commander of an armored infantry company of a brigade of the 77th Group Army: The task given to our company in the battalion at that time was to quickly seize No. 1 Heights to ensure that subsequent troops could join the battle on time.

However, at that time, the blue army built a lot of fortifications in the front, and the terrain he defended was pocket-shaped, which could easily form cross firepower, causing great casualties to our personnel.

At that time, I told the soldiers, I said that even if we had finished fighting, we must take down this high ground. This was a death order.

  With the fierce firepower of the Blue Army, this company succeeded in breaking through the Blue Army's defense and opened a channel for the follow-up in-depth attack group after paying two-thirds of the "casualties."

  History is always surprisingly similar.

On the Korean battlefield 70 years ago, the predecessor of the "Tiger Brigade", the 415 regiment of the 1st 39th Infantry Division was ordered to reinforce the frontline troops.

When passing the "Old Bald Mountain," it was blocked by a mechanized infantry company of the US Army.

  Liu Huanqing (93 years old), a veteran of the Korean War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea: Our troops wanted to support the front, and they had to pass through that place. After he occupied the hill, he cut off the marching route of our troops.

There are troops under him, and there are planes above him. He always contacts the plane to blow up your place and prevent you from passing.

  In order to arrive at the assembly area on time and complete the reinforcement task, the regiment commander ordered the guard platoon to pull out this "nail" at all costs.

  Liu Huanqing (93 years old), a veteran of the Korean War to Resist U.S. Aid and Aid Korea: Even the speech is the same. I don't want my guard platoon. It depends on whether you can take it down.

  Liu Huanqing led the entire platoon of soldiers, and he just took the "Old Bald Mountain" from an enemy several times his own. The entire platoon almost fell on the high ground, and Liu Huanqing, the platoon leader, was also seriously injured.

  Liu Huanqing (93 years old), a veteran warrior to resist US aggression and aid Korea: At that time, I could only hate my ineffective command. Later, what if you think you want to be effective?

  Countless revolutionary martyrs sprinkled three thousand miles of blood in North Korea. They exchanged huge sacrifices for the victory in the War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea. Their dashing forward and daring to work hard also gave this unit the label of "tiger".

  Liu Huanqing (93 years old), a veteran of the Korean War to Resist U.S. Aid and Aid Korea: Fighting is cruel. If you die, the enemy must die. If you are brave, he may die a little bit more, and may give way faster. .

  The direction of the soldiers can only move forward. Faced with the bloody tiger spirit of fighting to the end and not retreating to the death of a powerful enemy, it has become the spiritual background for generations of officers and soldiers to stick to, and has also ensured that the "Tiger Brigade" has moved forward bravely in previous reforms and development.

With the continuous changes in the army organization system, weapons and equipment, and missions, the "tiger brigade" can no longer adapt to the modern battlefield by relying solely on the strength of fighting and rushing. The coordination and command of various elements of various arms need to be completed independently by the combined battalion.

  Zhang Hao, the synthetic battalion commander of a synthetic brigade of the 77th Army: In the previous exercises, they passively accepted instructions, and they played where they were.

However, the current combined battalion exercises are different from before. The commander of the combined battalion is required to be able to independently master and control more than a dozen arms of the combined battalion, and be able to make independent decisions, attack independently, and evaluate independently, so that the combined battalion can hold a dozen arms. It's really not easy to point fingers into fists to form a combined combat force.

To use an analogy, the former commander had to worry about it. Now you have to not only think about it, but also do it. Otherwise, at a critical time, it will cause a loss of coordination and even greater losses.

  Facing the new changes and challenges on the march of a strong army, the officers and soldiers of the "Tiger Brigade" adopted the brigade-led battalion and battalion-led company model based on the combat characteristics of the combined system, and explored "cross-training of arms, mixed element training, unit New group training modes such as "integrated training" have allowed commanders at all levels to familiarize themselves with the combat characteristics and combat modes of various arms under actual combat conditions, effectively enhancing the overall combat capability of the combined brigade.

  Xu Junshan, deputy political commissar of a synthetic brigade of the 77th Army: As a troop that has stepped down from the Korean battlefield, we are always asking ourselves, are we ready to face war and confront powerful enemies?

Do you dare to fight?

Can you win?

These are the tests of the times for our new generation of revolutionary soldiers.

I think we must use the old generation of revolutionaries on the Korean battlefield to "do not break Loulan and never return" the perseverance, "knowing that there are tigers in the mountains, and lean towards the tigers" courage to conquer the strong army in the building of combat effectiveness. Only high grounds can build up the confidence to dare to fight and win in the future battlefield.
