When the US Army needs to get Special Forces soldiers into or out of a tight spot, it uses the Fast Rope Insertion/Extraction System (FRIES). US Air Force CV-22 Ospreys practiced this insertion method with US Army Special Forces operators in Latvia. US Army Special Forces are deployed in Latvia as part of Operation Atlantic Resolve.
