The Army's MQ-1C Gray Eagle quick reaction capability (QRC) will conclude its fifth, and final, combat rotation in May 2014. ALthough the rotations of the QRCs from the 2-13th Aviation Regiment will soon end, the legacy and lethal capabilities will continue. Echo Company, 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (Airborne) will assume the QRC mission and continue to provide armed reconnaissance, surveillance, and target aquisition (RSTA) support to ground force commanders anywhere in the world. The Army's QRCs personify the special operation truth: quality is better than quantity.
