The aide said the plane suffered disturbance to its GPS system due to jamming signals from the North's southwestern cities of Haeju and Kaesong as it was taking part in the annual US-South Korea drill, Key Resolve.When I was a jedi tanker, we knew that the force was strong with us, but we couldn't rely on the electronics in the vehicle. Simple map and compass navigation was the key. Even when they installed GPS devices a good tank platoon leader kept one finger on the map, scrolling across landmarks as we traversed terrain.
I like a GPS as much as anyone, but good navigation skills are necessary for mobile combat, and I'd certainly think that aviation qualifies as mobile combat. As does the naval service.
Getting jammed is good training, and hopefully our guys are learning from it.
