As an HQ MNC NE element kept at the required readiness, the team is the first responder within a defined area. It is activated on order of the MNC NE Commander and placed on two days' notice to move. The team is placed on high readiness and availability, tailored to the mission and composed of HQ MNC NE permanent personnel. Due to its composition and equipment, the team operates in cooperation with, and relies on, support from the NFIUs and/or other main subordinated units.
The deployment to Hungary was substantial in terms of establishing and practicing operational procedures so that the Headquarters will be ready to employ them in no time if need be. Consequently, both HQ MNC NE and NFIU HUN used this opportunity to train themselves, thus deepening their knowledge, testing protocols and settling into a fixed routine.
The training started with a visit to the Hungarian 25th "Klapka György" Infantry Brigade led by Brigadier General Gábor Lőrincz, one of the most modern military units within the Hungarian Armed Forces. On site, the Headquarters' personnel were thoroughly familiarised with the Brigade's structure and development process as well as with its equipment.
