Austrian Infantry On Training Mission in Germany

03 June 2014 - 

From 12 May to 3 June, soldiers of the Austrian Army's 25th Jägerbataillon took part in the US-led exercise "Combined Resolve 2014" in Germany.

Multi-national exercise

"Combined Resolve" was a multi-national exercise that included more than 4,000 troops from 15 NATO and European partner nations. Participating nations were Albania, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, France, Georgia, Hungary, Kosovo, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia and the United States.

Enhancing Interoperability

Held at the Joint Multinational Training Command's Hohenfels and Grafenwöhr Training Areas, the training set focus on maintaining and enhancing interoperability during unified land operations. For example, this was demonstrated when Austrian and U.S. aircraft landed troops at the beginning of the training mission, and when the Austrian soldiers provided communications to call in air support, and other types of support, during the mock battle.
