33rd Infantry Battalion (33IB) commanding officer Lieutenant Colonel Harold Cabunoc supervised the training instruction held at the Makabayan Combat Training Range in Barangay Palavilla, Lutayan, Sultan Kudarat.

“The brand new RPG-7 replaces the old 90mm Recoilless Rifle as the platoon level anti-tank/anti-personnel direct fire support weapon for the infantry battalions,” the 33IB said.
