The journalists took part in the ranpur when the Kopasgat convoy
Jakarta, Indonesia News Present : "Sniper (sniper/hidden) and journalists are the same. Both of them do their job silently. The difference is that snipers, silence kills opponents, while journalists, silence produces news," said Serka Amin Nur Hidaya, instructor at the 461st Wing 1st Command Training Operations Body, Command of the Indonesian Air Force's Fast Action Troops (Kopasgat).

Serka Amin explained this, when giving a statement to dozens of journalists, during the "Dirgantara Media Outbound" for two days (14-15/12), initiated by the Indonesian Air Force Information Service (Dispenau) for two days, at the Command Wing I Kopasgat headquarters, Halim Perdana Kusuma, Jakarta.

Why is there a connection between Sniper and journalists? It turned out that in this outbound activity, the Indonesian Air Force – through the Dispenau – wanted to invite journalists to get to know and understand when they are reporting in a field of conflict, whether inside or outside the country.

Journalists were also introduced to various situations of conflict, types of weapons, combat and tactical vehicles (ranpur/rantis), to ways of surviving in conflict areas such as in the forest/mountains with limited supplies.

Meanwhile, Lt. Aceng Rudianto, Pasilog Yonko 461 Kopasgat, explained more technically how to use weapons, use body armor for journalists in conflict areas, and how to follow the rules in the field according to directions from Kopasgat.

Well, here's an interesting one. Why? Because we in Indonesia, we must be grateful that the country is in a relatively safe situation. There were armed conflicts, for example, in East Timor (now Timor Leste), Aceh, Ambon and Papua. However, this does not rule out the possibility that journalists must participate in reporting on conflict areas, both at home and abroad (for example, with the TNI/Polri while on a mission as United Nations Peace Keepers).

Both Serka Amin and Letda Aceng reminded journalists to really understand the explanatory material provided, both in theory and practice. Because in this two-day activity, journalists also have to take part in a simulation or exercise whose conditions are relatively similar to an atmosphere of armed conflict.

“You must be behind our troops. We are your life shield,” Serka Amin said. "Regardless of your height, you still have to be in a lower position than the troops," said Lt. Aceng. This is done so as not to become the target of snipers.

So, when in a conflict zone, journalists cannot just take events with a camera or mobile phone, interview sources at will, regardless of the dangerous situation on the ground. That's why Kopasgat troops demonstrated various simulations with journalists when an armed conflict occurred.

Knowing Forbidden

Because troops protecting journalists are "living shields", journalists must also respect those protecting them. In essence, it is forbidden to “pretentiously know” on the battlefield or conflict. This is the importance of learning from the "Outbound Dirgantara" simulation from the Indonesian Air Force to journalists.

The sound of bomb/mine explosions, bullets, must be recognized by journalists. Even in an emergency situation, when a Kopasgat guard dies while protecting journalists, journalists must also be able to defend themselves. Like using firearms, surviving in nature, and so on.

The Aerospace Outbound event became even more interesting, when every journalist practiced being escorted and intercepted during a convoy with four Ranpur Turangga and ILSV (Indonesian Light Strike Vehicle) produced by the nation's children from Kopasgat. There was the sound of explosions and gunshots outside the vehicle. What should journalists who wear body armor with press labels do on their chests and backs?

Continue to obey the rules that have been informed by Kopasgat. Namely being behind the Kopasgat, taking turns getting out of the vehicle and being beside the ranpur while looking down. After that, journalists entered the forest area with Kopasgat escort. Obstacle happened again here. While taking cover and running, journalists must always be beside/behind Kopasgat.

Until the end of the simulation, by entering the "Tan House", as if this is a village that has not been said to be safe. So journalists and Kopasgat must remain vigilant when entering it. That's true, there are still mobs inside and can be paralyzed by Kopasgat.

Overview of Kopasgat

Kopasgat itself, which was founded in October 1947, is already known as a ground combat unit with three dimensions of capability, namely air, sea and land. Each soldier is required to have at least a para-command qualification (Parako) to be able to carry out his duties in the field.

Kopasgat, also known as troops with orange berets (formerly called the Special Forces Corps or Korpaskhas), are special forces from the TNI. Yonko I Kopasgat, who is teaching journalists, is based at Halim Perdana Kusuma Air Force Base, Jakarta.

It was fortunate that the journalists could be accompanied and given a variety of warfare knowledge from Kopasgat. “They are also very proud to be acquainted, discuss, with journalists. Because their job (Kopasgat) is always training, right," said Marsma TNI Indan Gilang Buldansyah, Head of the Air Force Information Service, who faithfully accompanied journalists during the two days of Outbound Dirgantara (abriyanto) activities.
