The demanding exercises were an arduous mix of simulation, live-firing (day and night) and field training exercises involving armour, infantry, artillery, engineers and a whole range of supporting capabilities fixed together to develop the level of competencies, capabilities and integration.
BG Paddy Ginn, Commander 20 Armoured Infantry Brigade said: "My Brigade is also the Force Generation Headquarters for Operation CABRIT (Op CABRIT)* deployments. The British contribution to Op CABRIT has just got better and better as time has gone on. We are now on the seventh rotation and preparing the eighth protection package.
The beauty of this exercise is that we have the ability to stop,
reset, go again. That's what training in combined arms manoeuvre warfare
gives you. That's when the real mastery will come, Brigadier Ginn concluded.
