Mounted Patrol members train to safely operate on motorcycles under all types of road and weather conditions. TZMP personnel operate from motorcycles as lead or screen convoy elements, light ground deployment elements for extended-distance reconnaissance, aerial drone retrieval, message delivery, or route clearance tasks.

Motorcycles present a low profile, high fuel economy, acceleration profile, and maneuverability, as well as possess the ability to access off-road and navigate high congestion areas. This an make motorcycles a good tool for mounted patrol missions despite a higher risk of fatality per mile travelled than other vehicles. Additional training and situational awareness is key to proper motorcycle operation.


Two wheels is greater than four!
TZMP members train and ride cruisers, sportbikes, scooters, and dual-sport motorcycle types, depending on the mission profile. TZMP does not currently participate in any motorcycle clubs or attend motorcycle rallies. Proper TZTSB-approved riding gear is required at all times. Go Teame!

By tasking the Kazi aerial drone via electro-optical object recognition to the ground ROV5 the drone pilot was able to utilize the rover's PWM radio signal operating at 2.4 GHZ to control both drone assets simultaneously.


SAILS AWAY: Teame members conduct cruising coastal ocean sailing and inshore sailing on small and medium sailing craft.
Keywords: - Aquanautics - - - - Swimming - - Sailing -
Nomenclature and concepts are first studied by reading and discussion in a class setting. Basic sailing skills are practiced in a small personal sailboat. As skills improve, the size of vessel may increase. Aquanautics skills and rescue swimming experience is a prerequisite for TZ sailors.


DEEP END DOGS: It's a big training day for all eligible K9 trainees when they move from shallow water to immersion training.
Keywords: - K9 - - Training - - -
After familiarization exercises in rivers, streams, and shallow pools, the K9 units are moved to indoor TZK9 deep pool facilities and don their lifejackets. It's important that trainers avoid causing anxiety or traumatic reactions while the animals take to the water and make their first swim.


ON TRAC: Forward and Flank elements of TZ mounted recon patrols vehicle requirements demand troop equipment mounting abilities, fuel economy, and high mobility on and off road.
