During the first phase of the exercise, the French service members had to react to a mine threat. An initial reconnaissance was conducted by combat engineers, while other tasks were carried out with a Black Hornet drone. After having determined the enemy's location, strength and dispositions, the Foreign Legionnaires dismounted from their multi-role armoured vehicles 'Griffon' and gained the upper hand on the opposing force.
The assault drill served as a means to sharpen the French contingent's tactical edge ahead of the upcoming training events such as exercise Bold Hussar. Planned for mid-April, it will integrate all elements of the UK-led battlegroup into the Estonian 1st Infantry Brigade. The French Army has been deploying its forces to the Baltic Sea region with NATO's enhanced Forward Presence as part of what is called in France Mission Lynx.
