Aware of the growing threat, the 11th rotation's personnel enhanced their mental and physical readiness during numerous exercises. As planned, the Battlegroup's training and exercise programme was broad
and intensive. It started with exercise Hunter, which was followed by Rising Griffin. This two-week tactical training event integrated defensive activities at the Battlegroup level. Rising Griffin required the interaction between different forces and sub-units—from battle companies to support companies, from air defence to artillery. They all had to be commanded in a concerted manner. Translating planning processes to actions on the ground, the Battlegroup was constantly improving its manoeuvres.
Throughout their tour of duty, the soldiers exercised alongside other NATO's eFP troops. Exercise Ajax Town saw the Allies from Battlegroups Lithuania and Latvia increasing their capabilities together.
